KHS Dress Code

Learners are expected to wear the official school uniform and appear neat and tidy at all times.

No additions to the uniform that are not in accordance with the regulations will be allowed (e.g. beanies). During events that allow the wearing of casual wear, learners should wear neat, presentable clothes. Beachwear, tight-fitting clothes, clothes that are see-through and/or too revealing are not allowed. Hair, shoes and accessories should be neat at all times.

Only learners who have applied, submitted relevant supporting documents and received the necessary permission from the School Governing Body, may deviate from official school uniform for religious, cultural and health reasons as contemplated in Part 1 paragraph 1 of this Code of Conduct.
