These include designs or text that represent or advertise tobacco, alcohol, drugs or identify the wearer as a member or sympathiser of any anti-social group, gang or ideology (secret or otherwise), or make any statement or suggestion that is discriminatory in nature.

Consequences for non-compliance

Students in violation of the MNS Dress Code will be required to change into appropriate clothing before returning to class. If the appropriate clothing is not readily available, the students will be required to contact their parents to provide the appropriate clothing. Failure to comply or remedy the situation will result in a warning. After three warnings, students will have to be collected from the school premises by their parents and will only be allowed to return to school when dressed in accordance with the MNS Dress Code. The MNS Dress Code must be followed during examinations and the above consequences remain applicable.

Implementation of the MNS Dress Code

All staff members are responsible for the implementation of the MNS Dress Code. To ensure uniformity, the Principals will determine the appropriateness of the students dress and appearance. The Principals’ decisions will be final.

These requirements are conducive to learning, set an appropriate tone and prepare students for the formal workplace.
