Mentone Girls’ Secondary College has an outstanding reputation in the local community and across the state; a reputation we wish to maintain. Consequently the College, with the support of Council wishes to reiterate the philosophy of uniform as a contributor to school unity, equality and positive community perception.

- Black leather lace up, low heel school shoes (not boots) are to be worn. T-bars are not permitted.
- In line with the SunSmart policy, students are actively encouraged to wear broad-brimmed hats whenever they are outside, but particularly for organised outdoor activities such as sports carnivals.
