Case Study:
The Geelong College

Newtown, VIC


The Geelong College is a Uniting Church coeducational day and boarding school, founded in 1861 with approximately 1,400 students aged three to eighteen, including 100 boarders. The College is situated over two campuses in central Geelong, southwest of Melbourne, and has strong links to the beautiful surrounding coastal and rural areas.

Why a Hooded Change Towel? Water sports feature heavily at The Geelong College and the Geelong College Recreation Centre features a FINA 25m pool and separate diving area. The College students participate in swimming from Early Learning, and then diving, water polo, and rowing within the APS sporting program (Associated Public Schools of Victoria) from year 7.

The Geelong College Uniform Committee eagerly supported the introduction of the CMJ Australia Hooded Change Towels as they found they addressed several concerns around children changing safely, body confidence, warmth and protection between races. The Junior School (EL to Year 3) tends to change at school and then travel to/from the pool in their Hooded Change Towels.

This has resulted in far less lost clothing at the end of intensive swimming. Parents are happy with the large naming tag inside the towels along with the way they dry so quickly from one day to the next during intensive swimming weeks.

Customised for The Geelong College. The Geelong College colours are bottle green, navy and white and so they chose to go with a bottle green CMJ Australia Hooded Change Towel with white logo on the breast. The towels were offered to Early Learning through to Year 12 students in sizes XXS to Large. The initial response was impressive, and The College has since conducted a further two runs with another planned for the end of Term 3 this year at the end of winter.

Whilst the towels are available all year round in their uniform shop, the Parents Association ran an ordering drive via TryBooking as a fundraising activity.
