All students are required to adhere to the Balcatta Senior High School Uniform Policy which reflects the requirements of the Department of Education’s Dress Codes for Students Policy.
Acceptance of enrolment at Balcatta Senior High School assumes an agreement between the parent/guardian and the enrolling student that the student will adhere to the Balcatta Senior High School Uniform Policy at all times. This Policy reflects the requirements of the Department of Education’s Dress Codes for Students Policy. The Balcatta Senior High School Council has endorsed the Uniform Policy which also has the full support of the Balcatta Senior High School P&C and School Board.
Uniforms are tangible evidence of the standards expected of students and play an important role in promoting a positive image of the school and creating a sense of identity for students. Uniforms provide a standard acceptable for clothing worn by students at the school.
The benefits of a uniform include:
- Promoting safety of students through easier identification;
- Keeping costs of clothing within reasonable limits for parents; and
- Assisting students to learn the importance of appropriate presentation.
