Dress code

DRESS CODE

At Newman Senior High School we have a compulsory school uniform and dress standard.

Our school uniform reflects the desire of the school community to present itself as a proud and united entity.  We believe this sense of belonging sets a positive tone and develops school spirit and pride. 

A uniform minimises differences between people, be these social, economic, or fashion. Furthermore, uniforms discourage unhealthy competition for material status between students. The wearing of a uniform by students enables staff to identify intruders and prepares them for the dress codes they may encounter in the workforce.

It is school policy that

  • every student must wear the year-appropriate school top and school  shorts, skirt or pants at all times and the school jacket when required. Year 12 students may wear the selected ‘Leavers Jacket’.
  • every student should come to school clean, well-groomed and neatly dressed.
  • students must wear enclosed footwear.
  • excessive amounts of jewelry are potentially dangerous and must not be worn to school.  Any jewelry that is worn must be removed before participation in Physical Education and practical classes.  Studs or sleepers may be worn.
  • for health reasons, students are encouraged to wear caps/hats when outdoors or in appropriate classes.
  • every student must wear either a Physical Education polo shirt or a Kicking and Shooting Goals polo shirt for  all Physical Education classes, and are encouraged to wear House colours for sporting carnivals.
  • Kicking and Shooting Goals and PE shirts should only be worn for appropriate classes.

Students, who, are unable to wear the full school uniform for any reason, must gain an exemption in writing from the Student Services Manager at the beginning of each term.

Excursions:
Students attending school excursions must wear full uniform unless otherwise instructed.
