The attire for the week of the Conference, students (boys and girls) must be properly dressed at all times, just like if you were going to school. We do not accept revealing clothes, such as hot pants, micro skirts, crop tops. For the boys, we do not allow sporting shorts.
Clothing attire for the Graduation Gala, the boys are required to wear a jacket and tie, no jeans, no sneakers, no flip flops; the girls are required to wear an appropriate cocktail dress (not revealing). For the K-Club Barbeque smart casual, no jeans, no hot pants, no micro skirts, no rompers, no playsuits, no sneakers or flip flops (for boys and girls).
Also, considering the varied climate Ireland has, we suggest some light protective rain gear (just in case). The weather is not predictable, so it would be convenient to bring a warm jacket, umbrella and raingear.
