The Applecross Senior High School uniform promotes the public image of our school and has a positive impact on student self-esteem. It also enhances sense of belonging and pride in the school community.
From an educative point of view, being suitably groomed is part of the process by which students learn the importance of self-image and to engage with employers and the community. As in the world of work, it is expected that students are clean, well groomed, appropriately and neatly dressed at all times. We are fortunate at Applecross SHS that the vast majority of students wear the uniform with pride every day.
However full uniform compliance is essential for the safety and welfare of staff and students as it signals quite obviously who is permitted to be on site and who is not. We are confident that the community will support our approach on Uniform for this reason.
The School Board and P&C has endorsed the School Uniform Policy that:
The Applecross Senior High School uniform has been designed by students, parents and staff so that it is comfortable, affordable and attractive and continual review of the uniform is undertaken to ensure this is the case.

It is not appropriate to wear to school:
If out of uniform, students will be asked to attend Student Services where they will be required to swap their item of non-uniform clothing for the correct uniform and return it to Student Services at the end of the day for washing. They will then receive their own item back. If a student is not compliant when given this opportunity to change, they will be given some think time to consider their choices, and then, depending on their choice, be asked to continue their work for the day in Student Servies as withdrawal from class. Parents will be informed if this occurs. If a student becomes argumentative over the issue further behavioural consequences will apply and may result in a Loss of Good Standing.
The support you can give as a parent is to ensure that your child is equipped with full school uniform; including jumper/jacket in Winter. It might be necessary for older students to work on managing the washing and drying (especially in Winter) so that they are available every day. It is only in the minority of cases, brought to the attention of a Deputy Principal that a student will be exempt from the process. If this is the case, please phone Reception and speak with a Deputy Principal (please do not leave a message) on 9314 9393 before school so this exemption can be arranged. Please note that if a parent is experiencing financial hardship and needs some support from the school in purchasing a school uniform for their child, you are still very welcome to contact Student Services Program Management for this support.
Applecross Senior High school students share the benefits of a reputation of high academic achievements and success in the arts, sports and community service. Please show that you are proud to be a member of this school by reflecting its good image in the way you dress. We look forward to your support in building our school uniform approach the best it can be and ensuring that your child is wearing it fully every day.
