Thornlie Senior High School – Uniform Policy
The schools uniform requirements, including headwear, footwear and other aspects of personal presentation were developed in consultation with students, parents/guardians and staff.
The Thornlie Senior High School Council has endorsed these uniform requirements for all students attending the school.
Secondary school students are required to wear a school uniform and meet the dress standards of the school.
The Council and the school community believe a school uniform:
- Fosters and enhances the public image of the school within its community
- Develops students’ sense of belonging to the school community
- Provides an opportunity to build school spirit
- Promotes a sense of inclusiveness, non-discrimination and equal opportunity
- Enhances the health and safety of students when involved in school activities
- Increases the personal safety of students and staff by allowing easier identification of visitors and potential intruders to the school
- Prepares students for work, as many work places have dress and safety codes.
Enrolment and Acceptance of Uniform Policy
Acceptance of enrolment at the school is deemed as an agreement between the parent/guardian, enrolling student and school that the student will comply with the School Uniform Policy.
NOTE: Denim is NOT part of the uniform and is not be worn to school. All clothing must be clean, tidy and in good repair.
