St Jarlath's College Grooming Policy

Standards of Personal Grooming expected of all Students at St. Jarlath’s

Those standards of personal hygiene considered normal and healthy in modern Irish culture, and recommended by relevant health authorities, are expected of all students as a matter of course. In the context of the uniform detailed elsewhere in the appendices to the Code of Behaviour, students are further required to meet standards of dress and personal grooming which are consistent with the ethos of the College. Especial note should be made of the following:

  1. All items of school uniform are to be maintained in a clean and neat condition.
  2. Hair is to be worn, preferably, ‘crew-cut’. Otherwise, it is to be certainly no shorter than a Number Three blade cut and where in excess of collar length it is to be tied back.
  3. Hair gel may be used and hair may be dyed entirely to another colour, in the natural range only, should the student, with parental permission, so choose. ‘Highlights’ or partial or multi-colour dying, however, are forbidden, as are any unusual patterning in the hair based on cutting, shaving, partial shaving or any treatment of the hair which makes it stand out unduly or otherwise shapes it in a manner notably less than natural.
  4. A clean-shaven appearance is required at all times.
  5. In terms of jewellery, a wristwatch may be worn. Rings, earrings, bracelets and any and all jewellery associated with body-piercings of whatever sort are uniformly to be avoided.
  6. Tattoos or other forms of dying or otherwise colouring the skin should not be at all visible in normal social course.
  7. Cosmetics, including nail varnish etc, are all to be avoided.
