School Uniform

The policy of the school and the community is that school uniform is compulsory at Coonabarabran High School. One of the features of the school is the adherence to the uniform code and the resultant positive impression that this creates. Students out of uniform must present a note to either the Boys’ Adviser (Mr Graham) or the Girls’ Adviser (Mrs Birrell) explaining the reason.

Consistent with DET policy, students may be excluded from certain school and school-based activities:

• if their clothing compromises agreed upon school community standards articulated in the school uniform requirements (below), and might be considered damaging to the image of the school in the larger community context;

• where the health and safety of the student or any other students, particularly as defined by occupational health and safety legislation, would otherwise be compromised.

Whilst a student will not be suspended solely for not wearing school uniform, ongoing non-compliance may be regarded as an infringement of the school’s student discipline policy.
