Religious Ceremonial Wear
While the Governors of the school will always respect the right of students to follow their religious beliefs, they reserve the right to impose restrictions upon the bringing to school of articles that could endanger the well being of the wearer or other members of the school community. A school policy exists which relates specifically to the wearing of the Kirpan and Kara. It restricts the dimensions of the latter and the wearing of the Kirpan to those students who have undergone an official baptism ceremony. Before such a ceremony takes place, parents are advised to acquaint themselves with the terms and conditions of the policy by obtaining a copy from the school. In all cases the school must be informed before a student wears a Kirpan on the premises.
