Uniform Policy

The Findon High School uniform has been endorsed by the School Governing Council in accordance with regulations for its development and approval.

Our School Governing Council has given three main reasons for this policy and the strong support it enjoys.

  • The wearing of a neat and tidy uniform is widely regarded as a positive indication of a successful school, and one in which the parents and students have real pride and a sense of ownership.
  • The use of uniform is a cheaper alternative than wearing casual clothes. Our school’s uniform committee of students, staff and parents ensures that our uniform items are reasonably priced.
  • To ensure students’ safety it is helpful for staff on duty to have all our students easily identifiable.
Physical Education and Sport:

To encourage good personal hygiene habits we believe that our students must be changed for Physical Education lessons, students are encouraged to purchase their House Polo from the Student Services Office. On most occasions the school will supply appropriate uniforms for sporting teams who compete in our sports programs. Students may still need their own shorts.

Shoes:

As part of Findon High School’s duty of care and Work Health and Safety obligation at workplaces, students are obliged to wear black leather/leather look enclosed shoes or T-bar sandals at school.

HOUSE POLOS

In line with the introduction of the House Polo, slight modifications have been made to the uniform policy. Students are able to wear the House Polo as part of their school uniform should they so choose. However, the House Polo is not to be worn underneath the white shirt. For students undertaking Physical Education as part of their studies, the expectation is that they will transition into wearing a House Polo shirt for their practical class over the next 12 months. For students not undertaking Physical Education, the House Polo is an optional garment to purchase.

The House Polo shirt can be ordered through Student Services. Sample shirts are available to assist with selecting the correct size. The school will order shirts twice per term. Expected delivery takes approximately 30 days. Shirts need to be paid for in full before the order can be processed.
