RICE-MMS’ student uniform consists of a limited range of clothing which includes footwear and head wear. The uniform identifies the students as belonging to RICE-MMS. Students are expected to wear the uniform during school hours, while traveling to and from school, and when engaged in school activities out of school hours.
The decisions about school uniform are taken in accordance with educational activities within and outside the school campus, health, safety measures and principles of anti-discrimination and equal opportunity. Aspects of the uniform related to safety, e.g. safe footwear and hats for eye protection, will be enforced as appropriate.
The school’s uniform policy has been designed, considering the economic, personal, social and cultural factors affecting students and their families. Factors such as physique or religious requirements are also taken into account in making a final decision on the design and fabric of the school uniform.
The school’s uniform policy and school uniform requirements are reviewed at least every two years and amended as and when necessary. Groups within the school community may also seek a review when circumstances change significantly or issues arise. Positive reinforcement and encouragement of responsible behavior are the preferred approaches to ensure that students willingly wear the school uniform.
Everyone has a role in setting the standards of discipline for the school. In this regard teachers and other school staff act as models of appropriate standards for students. They are expected to dress in a professional manner at all times. Severe action will be taken for non-compliance with uniform rules and indecent dressing. Arrangements for the supply of uniforms will be decided by the school and no exemption will be given to any student.
