School Uniform Policy

The School Uniform Policy plays an important role in promoting the image of the school, helps provide a safer environment for students and creates a sense of identity that is practical and inexpensive for parents and students. The School Uniform has been designed to:
  1. Avoid costs associated with competition in dress standards for student clothing by providing an inexpensive and practical dress standard that all families can afford (affordability); and
  2. Provide a means for staff at the school to easily identify all students associated with the school both on and off school grounds (safety).

What is the School Uniform?

All Gingin DHS students are expected to wear the school uniform as set out below. All items can be purchased through the P&C uniform shop.

Non-compliance with a School Uniform Policy

Students who are not able to comply with the School Uniform and do not have a valid exemption may have sanctions applied. These sanctions will apply to assist staff to maintain a safe environment, readily identify all authorized students and visitors and promote the good image of the school.

The application must state a valid reason for this exemption in accordance with Regulation 35 of the Education Act.
