DBCS has a number of different uniforms that are available for boys to wear. Each uniform has its own purpose and will be required to be worn for certain events & functions. The purpose of the uniforms is to have a consistent dress code and changes must first be cleared with the Head of Boarding.
Number Ones: When attending school functions, e.g. end and beginning of term, outside chapel services, interviews, meetings, when travelling on public transportation, doctor’s appointments, etc.
Blacks: May only be worn at school, not on outings and not mixed with civvies, school or sports uniform. Luxions are to be worn with the daily school uniform.
Leave Uniform: Group outings, tours, etc.
Concert Uniform: This is worn during performances. Boys must ensure that this is checked and taken out the day before performances take place.
Boys must ensure that they are well-groomed at all times.
These uniforms are set and may not be altered in any way. The staff member on duty will address any boy thought to be dressed inappropriately.
Wrist watches form a part of the daily uniform and must be black in colour.
One set of civvies is allowed at school for social gatherings. This is to avoid clutter and mess in the dormitories.
Should more than one set of civvies be found during inspection, the clothes will be taken away and placed in a storage cupboard for the remainder of the term.
