WANNEROO SECONDARY COLLEGE: UNIFORM POLICY

 The Department of Education’s policy on school dress code allows schools and colleges to make the wearing of a school uniform a requirement.  Wearing of the uniform brings with it many benefits such as: the promotion of the College’s public image, an enhanced college 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 Uniform is endorsed by the College Board, the P & C committee and the Student Council

We would appreciate it if we could all work together to get our students into full uniform. Please note that for all Government Schools, denim items of clothing are not permitted as part of the College Uniform.

 

UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS

Only items sold at Tudor School Uniforms for Wanneroo Secondary College are school uniform. No other skirts or shorts are permitted.

The pants, shorts and skirts of the uniform are plain blue and in many styles. These can be viewed at Tudor School Uniforms at 20 Prindiville Drive, Wangara or the College Uniform shop.

Shoes:  Flat enclosed shoes are to be worn for safety reasons.  Thongs, sandals, flip flops, ugg boots and similar are unacceptable and, if worn, students will be refused entry into science and all practical classes for health and safety reasons.  The Uniform Policy will also be applied.

Jewellery:  Conservative jewellery and watches are acceptable.  However, school is not a place for expressing oneself via accessories.  For this reason and for safety reasons, dog chains, collars and wrist bands with spikes and studs are unacceptable.  For safety reasons, long and dangly ear-rings are not suitable for school wear.  Earrings, such as hoops and studs, are acceptable provided that they fit onto a $2 coin.  Any piercing which presents a danger to the wearer must be covered or removed at school.
