New Uniform Transition

In 2020 Merici College began the transition to a new summer uniform, moving from a light blue to a tartan dress.

While initially we advertised that the period of transition would be 2 years, the College Executive (in conjunction with the College Board) has agreed to extend this transition to 3 years. This will allow students who began in Year 7 in 2019 (the year before the new uniform implementation) to complete Year 10 while still wearing the blue dress should they choose to. From 2023 all students in summer must wear the tartan dress or the shirt/shorts option.

Blazers

New blazers are available from our College uniform shop. Previously purchased blazers from the former manufacturer will still be permitted to be worn through to the end of 2024. However incoming Year 7 students are required to purchase the new styled PSW blazer. The blazer is a compulsory uniform item in Terms 2 and 3, optional in Terms 1 and 4. The school jumper and/or vest, as well as undergarments can be worn under the blazer for extra warmth. The blazer must be worn to and from school.
