Uniform Policy

GILGANDRA HIGH SCHOOL

SCHOOL STUDENT UNIFORM POLICY

 The view held by the school's P&C and staff is that the wearing of the school uniform assists in the development of good school tone and encourages a sense of belonging and unity. The Department of Education and Training also supports the wearing of school uniforms.

This Student Uniform Policy was reviewed in collaboration with staff, parents and students.

DRESS CODE – SPECIAL ITEMS

 

JEWELLERY -  This includes items such as rings, earrings, chains etc.

The basic rule is to use common sense and be aware of safety issues within the school.

  • Inoffensive standard jewellery is acceptable. This includes stud earrings, small chain to be worn inside the shirt, but to be removed for PE or sport.
  • Long dangling earrings, large loop earrings and chains (either around the neck or waist) are inappropriate and present safety concerns. Students may be asked to remove any jewellery which is unsuitable / offensive or a safety hazard.

 

MAKE UP       Excessive makeup is inappropriate for school.

NOTE:             Any student who wears clothing and / or jewellery which is offensive, may be

removed from class and parents called. This includes: clothing bearing inappropriate symbols, pictures, or language, or messages such as those endorsing drugs or drug usage.

Contact may be made to discuss the matter with the parents/carers of students who continue to be out of uniform.

 

Parents/carers may request support for the cost/provision of uniform items by discussing the matter with the Principal.

 

The Principal should be contacted for any clarification on the uniform policy.
