Students who are registered for a total of seven classes per week or more may request a permanent locker in the change rooms. Two students may combine their classes (to reach the total of seven classes per week) in order to acquire a shared locker. Locker requests may be made at the School Office. Locker allocation is based on a first-come-first-serve basis. Students registered for less than seven classes per week may use the smaller lockers on a temporary basis by removing their locks and contents at the end of each evening. You will notice that certain areas are designated for certain age groups in the ladies change room.


Please remember that lockers are to be kept clean. No writing or stickers will be permitted on lockers. Absolutely NO FOOD should be kept in the lockers. Regular locker checks will be conducted.
