School Uniform:

The school uniform is designed to help students dress neatly and to avoid undesirable competition. It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to co-operate in ensuring that students wear the correct school uniform to and from school and to all school functions. (This may necessitate the purchase of two pairs of trousers). All students in Coláiste Eoin must wear the school uniform along with school tie. Failure to do so will result in sanctions being imposed.

We take huge pride in the school uniform in Coláiste Eoin and have a strict policy in place with regard to this. We believe that it is of the utmost importance that students’ uniform and presentation is neat and tidy for class for each school day. It is about maintaining the highest standards in this area, establishing positive practices and preparing our students for further education and the world of work.

This starts with the school uniform. We expect parents to assist students here and to work in cooperation with the school to help students to understand the significance of the school uniform, take pride in their presentation, their school, and their school-work in order to be the best they can be. Students should not be wearing non-uniform jackets or hoodies.
