Sunsmart Policy –
Hats for Term 4- Students were made aware at the Middle School Assembly yesterday that there has been a minor change to the Hat Policy here at Galen. Students are encouraged to have a School sun hat for Term 4. If they are in the sun they are required to wear the hat. If they are in the Shade they are to have a hat in their posession. Encourage- ment from home regarding this would be appreciated.
The School Policy regarding the wearing of Jewellery states: ‘Only minimal Jewellery should be worn at Galen College. It should be appropriate for school activities bearing in mind Safety, Health and Neatness’.  The school has the discretion to ask any in-appropriate Jewellery be removed.’ This information is relevant to those boys who have large ‘bolts’ in their ears. A clear plastic plug is required to be worn.
White Socks are the only socks to be worn with the School Uniform
