About Our Uniform

At St Michael’s Collegiate School, our uniform is a strong symbol of unity and identity. Our girls wear the uniform with distinction and pride. To honour our heritage, the uniform includes elements of tradition while remaining practical, stylish and contemporary.

Uniform History

For many girls, the first introduction to the Collegiate uniform is the red and white checked smock, worn from Kindergarten to Year 2 in the Junior School. In the 1800s, the Sisters would collect the children each morning and take them to School. Children less fortunate would be warmly clothed in a smock and nourished with a bun. Hence, you will sometimes hear our smocks today still referred to as ‘bun smocks’.

Whilst today the smocks serve largely to protect the formal uniform, they are a lovely reminder of our heritage and the modest beginnings from which we have grown.

Today our uniform requirements vary to suit the developmental age of the girls in our care. The well-known tones of Collegiate red, navy and white are easy to wear and have become readily identifiable in Hobart.
