Students should wear the correct uniform each day and bring sports or drama clothing in their bags. A list of uniform items can be found below.
Full school uniform includes black shoes - preferably fully enclosed black leather shoes.
Below is an excerpt from the Footwear Guidelines for NSW Government Schools:
The Department, through its WHS Policy, is committed to providing a safe working and learning environment for all employees, others undertaking work, students and visitors, in accordance with statutory and regulatory obligations and corporate objectives. Footwear is an important safety item. Good soles provide a sound grip on the floor preventing accidents such as slips, trips and falls from occurring. Footwear can also protect feet from damage caused by accidents such as falling objects or chemical spillages. These guidelines have been developed to assist NSW government schools in providing a safe working and learning environment. Schools which already have risk management controls in place in relation to footwear should refer to these guidelines when reviewing and evaluating those controls.
Areas where safe footwear must be worn:
In accordance with the Safe Working Policy, the Department has identified areas of its workplaces where appropriate footwear must be worn by employees, students and visitors to ensure their safety. Areas where enclosed leather footwear (or other material confirmed by the manufacturer to be suitable, refer to Australian/NZ Standard 2210: Safety Protective and Occupational Footwear) is required are:
- Industrial Arts and trades workshop areas
- Science laboratories
- Canteen or Food Technology (kitchen areas)
Sports uniform is only to be worn to/from school by Years 8-10 on Tuesdays (our regular sports day). On days when students have timetabled PDHPE or Sport lessons, students should come to school in school uniform and change into their sports uniform prior to the relevant lesson.
If students need to wear an additional layer/shirt under their school shirt they should be plain all-white only.
Students who have a genuine reason for not wearing full school uniform on a particular day should bring a note from their parents to the front office before 8:45am, so that they can be issued with a uniform pass.
Out of Uniform Process
Students who do not wear the proper uniform and do not have a note can expect one or more of the following consequences:
- be sent to the office for a uniform pass (this will be recorded as a negative incident on Sentral and appear in the student & parent portal);
- have items of non-school uniform clothing confiscated by staff;
- be asked to change out of non-school uniform items into second hand uniform items provided by the school;
- complete a lunchtime or after school detention for repeatedly failing to wear the uniform correctly.
