HAIR & HAIR ACCESSORIES – Hair should be brushed and be kept neat and tidy, away from the face, especially the eyes. If hair is shoulder length, it must be tied back in a tidy manner by a hair tie or similar. Hair accessories need to be kept to hair colour ro school colours (black or blue). Affordable hair ties and clips are available at your local supermarket. No sparkly, multicolour or elaborate hair accessories are to be worn.
