School Dress Code

Ballymakenny top
09-July-21

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It was brought to the school's attention yesterday that a school top was now available for sale on social media as part of our school uniform. This school top does not meet the specification for Ballymakenny College. There was no consultation with the school on this matter before the items went on sale to establish if they conformed with the school dress code and specification.

Ballymakenny College developed a school dress code and items of clothing for our school in 2015 with a committee made up of students, parents and staff members. It was a lengthy process and the views of all the school community were sought and taken into consideration before a dress code was agreed by the Board of management of Ballymakenny College.

To avoid any disappointment or confusion please follow the information below in relation to purchase of school uniform items for Ballymakenny College.
