The College Uniform

The College uniform is a visible sign that students attend Firhouse Community College and hopefully gives students the opportunity to take pride in their school. The correct uniform must be worn at all times including when on school trips and visits unless permission is given to do otherwise. In preparing for the new school year please make sure that your son/ daughter has the complete and correct uniform for school. Students without full and proper uniform may not be allowed to attend class.

Physical Education Uniform – must be worn for all PE classes

We have made significant change to the PE uniform, these changes have been made in conjunction with the wishes of both the parents and the students.

  • Short sleeved, full length, green polo shirt, with school crest
  • Full length, black tracksuit bottoms, with white stripe, with school crest
  • Quarter zip Tracksuit Top (black and green with white trim) with school crest
  • Runners (white sole only)

The PE Uniform must be purchased from  The Sisters, Village Green, Old Bawn Road, Dublin 24 as only uniform with the school crest is acceptable.

This PE uniform is compulsory for all first Year students.

All students throughout the school must have the green polo shirt and the black tracksuit bottoms, both with college crest.

Students who still have the grey college PE hoodie may continue to wear this but when it is due for replacement it must be replaced with the Quarter Zip Tracksuit Top.  No other tops are acceptable. 

 

Jewellery must be kept to a minimum.
Body piercing, other than earrings is not permitted for health and safety considerations.
Earrings, if worn, must be discreet.
For safety reasons jewellery must not be worn during P.E. or practical classes.It is not appropriate for students to wear make-up or extreme hairstyles during the school day. Students may be asked to remove make-up or adjust hairstyles before attending class.
