School Uniform Policy

School Uniform Policy

Wearing the school uniform plays an important part in establishing a positive community identity and contributes to the creation of an appropriate work ethic. Acceptance of enrolment at Lesmurdie Senior High School assumes an agreement between the parent/guardian and the enrolling student that the student will dress in accordance with the school’s uniform policy. Every student is expected to comply with the School Uniform Policy in the same way that they are expected to comply with the rules relating to classroom behaviour, absences and so on.

The school uniform has been developed in consultation with the School Board and other members of the School Community, including the school’s Uniform Committee, which is made up of parents, students and school representatives.

Students are to wear the designated uniform during school hours, to and from school and while attending school excursions. Parents/guardians are asked to co-operate by ensuring that students wear their uniform to school each day. Students are required to change into the relevant uniform when participating in sport, dance or physical education classes, training sessions or competitions. Students who have Period 1 Physical Education or Dance classes MUST arrive in school uniform and then change at the start of Period 1. For Period 5 classes, students must change back into school uniform at the end of the lesson.

It is the expectation that students will be dressed in uniforms that are neat and tidy at all times. Students should ascertain their clothing needs for any particular day and make the necessary arrangements.

Uniform Shop

Throughout the term the Uniform Shop is open from 8.15am to 10.00am every Tuesday morning.

Consequences of Breaching the School Uniform Policy

  • In the case of a first breach of the School Uniform Policy, the student can pick up the item at the end of the day. The name of the student will be recorded in case there are further breaches of this policy.
  • A LSHS Info Sheet will be completed with a letter home request so that parents are informed that their son/daughter has breached the School Uniform Policy and where applicable, failed to follow the directions of a teacher.
  • A second breach of the School Uniform Policy will result in the non uniform item being confiscated, bagged and stored as above, and parents being contacted by letter / telephone by the Deputy Principal. At this point, confiscated items are to be collected by a parent/guardian.
  • A third breach of these guidelines will result in the same process as the second breach and may result in (but not limited to) a student being denied the opportunity to:
    • attend school social events, such as the School Ball, Dinner Dance and/or River Cruise;
    • participate in extra-curricular events such as the Interschool Athletics Carnival, YOH Fest, school tours, as well as optional (non course related) camps and excursions;
