Gold Creek School Uniform

Rationale:
Gold Creek School promotes excellence in all that it does. The school expects students to take pride in their appearance through the wearing of the correct uniform. The uniform identifies children with their school, promotes student allegiance and it also acts as a means towards providing equality amongst children, regardless of socio-economic background. The wearing of a uniform unites the school publicly, as well as being practical. The uniform supports occupational health and safety issues of safe and practical clothing particularly in workshops and practical areas.

The school uniform can be purchased from MacDonalds Schoolwear in Gungahlin.

Gold Creek School (Senior Site) Uniform Procedures

Uniform Expectations

The wearing of school uniform is regarded as a core behaviour expectation; in the same way as handing in homework and abiding by playground rules.

Satin, see-through or stretch skin-tight fabrics are not permitted. Tights and leggings are not regarded as suitable alone, because they are quite revealing and cause embarrassment for both staff and other students.

Students are asked not to ‘modify’ the uniform in such ways as tying it up at the back, shortening skirts or wearing visible different colours underneath.

Uniforms may be ordered through suppliers identified by the school. Any students or family experiencing financial difficulty may seek assistance in the purchase of uniform from the school’s ‘Equity Fund’.

Sanctions

  1. Students will be excluded from certain activities if they are not wearing school uniform.  These include but are not limited to excursions, formal occasions such as school assemblies and access to certain parts of the school grounds. Students who persistently do not wear uniform will be required to complete after school detentions.
  2. Tutor Group Teacher counsels student on their uniform
  3. Tutor Group Teacher makes a phone call home to inform parents/carers of uniform infringement
  4. Student is placed on after school detention.

Support from Parents and Staff

If students are unable to wear a school uniform on a particular day, they must have a written note from their parent or carer.

Staff will monitor student observance of the School Uniform Policy and, from time to time conduct a ‘uniform blitz’ to reinforce our expectations.

Parents are asked to support the school’s uniform policy by sending students to school in uniform each day, backing up the school’s request for support and for instances of non-compliance.

Authority for the Setting of School Uniform Policy

Our School Uniform Policy has been set by the School Board, which has the responsibility under the Education Act, for setting the policy and directions of the school.

The school uniform can be purchased from Macdonalds Children’s Wear in Gungahlin or Chilada at Mitchell.
