Our school uniform is important to us. Our uniform policy is endorsed by the School Board, supported by the P&C and is something we try very hard to uphold as an important aspect of the school culture.
The wearing of uniform unites our student community as a whole group - in much the same way as a sporting team. It says who we are, what we believe in and where we come from. The uniform also provides added security for our students as well as for our teaching staff, who have duty of care responsibility.
As of publication, the current uniform is as follows:
Button up Shirt: Red/White Panels + Embroidered
Skirt: Black/Red/Grey with Pleats
Jacket: Black/Red/White Microfibre & Embroidered
|Shirt: Plain Red T-Shirt |
The following items are available from Workin’Gear Schools http://workingearschools.com.au/product-category/uniforms-by-school/calwell-high-school/
- Polo: Red/White Panel + Embroidered
- Jacket: Softshell
The uniform policy is based on the following principles:
Student security at school - intruders are easily noticed.
Attitude to study - assists students to remember that school is primarily a place for work and learning. Students must come dressed to school as a student to be a student.
Safety and accountability outside school - students are easily identifiable on excursions and when travelling to and from school.
Student unity - helps to develop a school spirit and culture; facilitates a positive image in the community.
Expense and equity - reduces pressure to buy brand/label clothing and does not go out of fashion in a couple of months.
