Uniform

As you are aware Western Heights College has a Student Uniform Policy which has been passed by our school council and is current policy.

All parents are asked to support this policy and to ensure that students attend our school in the correct uniform. This policy, as seen below, very clearly details the dress code which is applicable to all students.

The purpose of the College dress code is:

  • To enhance the reputation of the College.
  • To assist in developing a sense of individual pride in students and promote development of their personal presentation skills.
  • To promote a sense of collective identity within the College.
  • To promote individual student safety, group security and reasonable standards of health and hygiene.

It is a condition of enrolment that all students wear the College uniform. Summer or winter uniform may be worn at the discretion of the student.
Personal Appearance:

  • Hair is to be neat and clean. In some circumstances students may be required to wear hair nets or other forms of cover for reasons of safety or health.
  • All clothing is to be clean, neat and in good repair.
  • Appearance and/or apparel to be such that they are not likely to distract any person from classroom learning.
  • When wearing casual clothes, such as for an excursion or a mufti-day, it is to be appropriate to the circumstances e.g. an excursion may require solid footwear. Tee-shirts or other items are not to have extreme or offensive diagrams and/or statements.
  • Watches and religious symbols such as a crucifix are permitted. No other jewellery is allowed.
  • Facial piercings – small nose piercing consisting of a small stud only – no rings, lip, septum or eyebrow piercings. Taping of piercing accoutrements will not be accepted as a substitute for their removal, as taping can constitute a health and safety risk of equal magnitude to the accoutrement itself.
  • A simple stud or sleeper for ear piercings.
  • Minimal levels of make-up only.
  • Only students observing the Dress Code or who have an approved exemption will be able to represent the College in the community.

College Blazers have been added to the dress code as an optional addition, ties will also be available later this term. These are highly subsidised until June 30 (mid-year) … normally they retail at $169.95 … but until mid-year will be able to be purchased at a subsidised price of $100. Great value. Thanks to School Council for supporting this new initiative.
