WANNEROO SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL: UNIFORM POLICY
The wearing of the school uniform greatly enhances the look of the students and the standing of the school in the community, we would appreciate it if we could all work together to get our students into full uniform.
The Department of Education and Training’s policy on school dress code allows schools to make the wearing of a school uniform a requirement. Please note that for all Government Schools, denim items of clothing are not permitted as part of the School Uniform.
Wearing of school uniform brings with it many benefits such as: the promotion of the school’s public image, an enhanced school spirit, a reduction of rivalry between students, an increase in convenience, cost-saving for parents and preparation for work environments which have dress and safety codes.
The School Council at Wanneroo Senior High School in consultation with the Student Council has established a Uniform Policy which sets out the appropriate standard of dress. The P & C endorses the Uniform Policy and encourages the support of parents, students and staff in this matter of dress code.
