Uniforms and Equipment

The Summer Uniform

The summer uniform at MLC School for students from Kindergarten to Year 9 is a light easy care poly-cotton wedgewood coloured blue dress with a dropped waist and pleats back and front. A fine pinstripe runs through the fabric with navy blue trim on the cuffs of the short sleeves and collar.

Short navy socks and black regulation school shoes are worn in summer.

The Winter Uniform

The winter uniform for Kindergarten to Year 9 students has retained the traditional uniform of MLC School with a deep navy box pleat pinstriped woollen tunic over a wedgewood blue shirt. Students wear a tie and belt at the waist.

Long navy socks or black tights and black regulation school shoes are worn in winter.

The Senior School Uniform

Our Senior School students in Year 10 to Year 12 wear a straight A-line skirt in the traditional MLC School uniform fabric of deep navy pinstriped wool. There are three pleats in the front.

For summer a short-sleeved fitted poly-cotton shirt with a loop and button collar is worn. In winter the same shirt comes with long sleeves.

Short navy or long navy socks and black regulation school shoes are worn in the summer terms. Long navy socks or black tights and black regulation school shoes are worn in the winter terms. Black sheer stockings are worn on formal occasions such as Speech Night.

Pre-Kindergarten Uniform

We have devised a practical and attractive uniform for Pre-Kindergarten students to wear. Importantly, nearly all the uniform will be worn again as your daughter moves into Kindergarten.

The School Blazer

All students at MLC School must own the School Blazer. The Blazer is a deep navy pinstriped lined woollen jacket with two front pockets and the school crest in gold. As students earn pocket recognition for achievements in Senior and Middle Years these are embroidered on the front panels. The Blazer must be worn on all formal occasions and covers or takes the place of the jumper when travelling to and from school.

The School Hat

All students from Kindergarten to Year 5 at MLC School must own the School Hat. The School Hat is optional for students in Year 6 to Year 12. The School Hat for both winter and summer is a navy blue straw panama with a ribbon band and school crest. It is worn everyday to and from school and on some formal occasions and excursions.

Other Items

There are many other items of uniform that the students may choose to purchase such as the school jumper, scarf and hair accessories, as well as a cardigan and vest for Senior School.

The Sports Uniform

The MLC School sports uniform combines the wedgewood blue and navy blue of the school's colours in a number of combinations depending on the sport your daughter plays. The standard uniform for PE lessons is a wedgewood blue polo shirt with navy and gold trim and the navy shorts. White MLC School socks and training shoes are worn to PE.

All Junior School students are required to wear the standard sports uniform when representing their school at Saturday sport or during PDHPE lessons. Middle and Senior Years students have the option of wearing the PDHPE shirt with shorts for PDHPE lessons. However students must wear the correct sports specific uniform for each sport at both training and competition. Please refer to the individual sport pages of the MLC School Community website for uniform details.

An MLC School tracksuit is available and is required if the students are to represent MLC School at Saturday or any inter-school sport. It is certainly necessary during winter months of sport.

Information Technology Evenings

All students from Year 5 onwards require laptops. Information Technology Evenings are held each year to provide information to parents regarding the MLC School Laptop Rental Program.

The program includes:

  • Information relating to laptops
  • Occupational Health and Safety
  • Presentations by current students using the laptop technology.

There are also representatives from the MLC School IT Department for any questions you may have in regard to the use of the laptop and technology generally in the school. 

Student Laptops

As part of MLC School’s commitment to integrating technology into learning, all senior students are asked to use their own Apple laptops.

The recommended laptop is the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro Retina with the following minimum requirements:

256GB Hard Disk Drive
8GB RAM
Accidental Theft and Damage insurance
3 Year AppleCare+ protection

Laptops can be purchased via the MLC School Procurement Portal – https://shop.compnow.com.au/school/mlcsyd

The IT Department does not recommend the 12” MacBook as there is only a single port for both power and USB connections.

Please ensure that this machine is purchased within Australia as the School has found that the warranty on machines purchased outside of Australia may not be honoured by Apple.

MLC School provides:

  • Full wireless connection across the whole campus
  • High speed Internet access for all users
  • Network storage facilities for student work
  • Provision of a full suite of licensed IT applications which give flexibility in the process, presentation and storage of learning experiences
  • Provision of student-based email for communication
  • Specialist training in and access to high-end applications
  • Onsite Help Desk and online ticketing system
  • Onsite warranty/repair centre for students’ convenience
  • Loan laptop pool

All student laptops must include the extended three-year warranty offered by Apple and be covered by an Accidental Theft and Damage insurance policy.

IT Department

MLC School has a fully equipped IT Department who all work together to cover various aspects of this important part of your daughters’ education.

The IT Helpdesk is open to parents and students during the holidays from 9am-3pm, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Please go to the main Reception on Rowley Street to ask for someone from IT to assist you.

Please be aware that the School will be closed from 21 December 2018 to 7 January 2019.

The team is here to assist you and your daughter to ensure that the device is operational as quickly as possible. Access can also be provided to an offsite Apple authorised repair centre. The team will facilitate the repair of your daughter’s device with the Repair Centre to ensure a stress-free and efficient resolution.
