Uniform

The College uniform is an integral part of the Damascus College identity and students are expected to wear their uniform with pride. Students must wear the complete uniform whilst at the College, travelling to and from the College and when attending College functions, unless otherwise directed.

If a student is not in the appropriate uniform, the parent/guardian should provide the student with a written note of explanation for that day.
