The Rossmoyne Senior High School’s uniform policy was developed by the School Board in accordance with Department of Education and Training policy and guidelines on dress standards for students in public schools. The wearing of school uniform is supported strongly by the Rossmoyne community and is a symbol of pride in the school. There is an expectation that students will comply with the dress requirements and that valuable school time will not need to be diverted to following up on breaches of school uniform policy. The new uniform can be purchased or pre-ordered from Uniform Concepts (See below).
The wearing of school uniform is compulsory. Parents indicate their support of the school uniform policy on their child’s enrolment form.
Under section 128C of the Education Act, the School Board determines, in consultation with the school community, a school uniform for students. Shoes are part of our school uniform.
School uniform is a very important part of the Rossmoyne Senior High School ethos and tradition.
Lower School (Years 7 – 10)
White cotton school shirt – full button (not soft collar ‘polo’ type) with logo. In colder weather a plain white T-shirt or roll-neck top can be worn under the shirt for extra warmth. This must not hang down past the arms of the school shirt. Scarves must be in the ‘school blue’.
Upper School (Years 11, 12)
Blue cotton school shirt – full button (not soft collar ‘polo’ type) with logo. In colder weather a plain white or pale blue T-shirt or roll-neck top can be worn under the shirt for extra warmth. This must not hand down past the arms of the school shirt. Scarves must be in the ‘school blue’.
Students then have a choice of:
- Navy blue, good quality tailored full length plain trousers – NOT denim, corduroy or tencel. Tracksuit pants are NOT permitted.
- Navy blue tailored shorts (not full elastic waist, draw string, cargo, corduroy or board type).
- Royal blue jumper.
- Tartan skirt with two front pleats.
- Suitable enclosed low heeled shoes, sturdy sports or flats. All footwear must be black or white. NO VARIATIONS ARE ACCEPTABLE. No slip – ons are to be worn as they can be dangerous.
- Black stockings can be worn with skirts and socks need to tone in with the school uniform.
Skirts must be worn at a modest length.
Exemptions / Non-compliance with Uniform Policy
Students who are unable to meet the Uniform Policy on any particular day must bring a note from a parent explaining the reasons for non-compliance. This is to be handed in to Student Services before the start of school. The Associate Principal will determine whether or not a dress code exemption pass will be issued.
Caps or Hats
All students and teachers must wear a cap or hat during break times when out on the school oval. A cap or hat is to be worn by each student in Year 7, 8 and 9 during PE classes. Headwear must not contain promotional material. Beanies must be in the school blue.
Make-up, Jewellery and Body Adornments
Make-up, jewellery and body adornments must be minimal, unobtrusive and safe. Earrings should be kept to sleepers or studs. If, in the opinion of the school administration, students do not adhere to these guidelines, they will be required to make the necessary changes to conform to this policy.
Health and Safety
Students will be issued with a Health and Safety policy in the Design & Technology, Home Economics and Science departments. This may include appropriate closed footwear, protective clothing, safety goggles etc.
