The school has arranged with Victoria Uniform for our students to collect their graduation gowns at the Sheung Wan outlet. Please take note of the following information:

  1. The school has paid for 5 days of rental from 18 June to 22 June 2018.  The graduation gown can be collected from the morning of 18 June 2018 onwards.
  2. Please ensure that the gown is in good condition during the rental period and it is expected that the gown is to be returned by 22 June.
  3. Students will be charged a fee for damaged and/or soiled gowns.
  4. Students who wish to rent the gown for a longer duration would be responsible for the rental difference. They can top up the difference and pay Victoria Uniform directly.
