Caring for your uniform

Caring for your Villa Maria College Uniform

 

Summer dress

Please do not soak the garment. A Sard (or similar) soap should be used regularly to spot clean the white collar (do not use bleach or spray-on products). The garment can be washed on a cool, gentle machine cycle with a mild detergent. Drip dry inside out in the shade (do not tumble dry). A warm iron may be used to press the dress, but should not really be necessary.

 

Blazer

Please note the blazers are dry clean only.

We stock replacement buttons in the Uniform Shop at $2 each.  Please use a strong yarn to replace them as the metal seems to cut through normal cotton very quickly.

 

Winter Skirt

These are made from a wool mix fabric. Please check the care label inside your skirt. They can be washed on a gentle cycle in the washing machine.

 

Cardigan

These are a wool mix garment and can be machine washed on a delicate/wool cycle.

Please check the care label on the garment.

 

Blouses

Please try to keep the cuffs and collar clean by regularly scrubbing with Sard soap or similar. They can be machine washed – preferably with light coloured garments.

 

Naming

Please take the time to ensure all items of uniform are named.

 

Second-hand uniforms

Taking a bit of extra care with your daughter’s uniform will pay off when it comes to selling outgrown garments through our shop. The College takes a 15% commission on successful sales and these funds are used to support student learning through the Student Assistance Fund. There is information on the school website for selling uniform items.

 

Shop hours

Opening hours during term are Mondays 12.30 – 5pm and Thursdays 12.30 – 4pm.

 

If you have any problems or concerns with uniform, please feel free to contact me.
