Uniform for VET subjects
Please ensure that you are wearing the correct uniform when attending your VET subject. This is vital for OH &S reasons. However, you should not wear this uniform when undertaking other classes. For example, it is not appropriate to wear playing uniform except during Sport and Rec, no overalls except during Building and Construction. Jewellery, make-up and hair colouring. Jewellery, make–up and hair colouring should not be extreme. Visible piercings should be limited to small sized earrings/ studs and nose studs as any others have potential to cause injury.
The school has a responsibility to take appropriate measures to minimise the risks associated when placing the student in a range of environments on the school site. Under ‘Occupational Health and Safety’ guidelines in relation to safety and footwear, schools require students to be wearing substantial footwear deemed safe. Unsafe shoes include those with openings; platform or high heels; shoes made from materials that do not provide adequate protection. We at Hallam Senior College (the Principal, teaching staff and School Association) have developed a uniform policy, in conjunction with the OHS guidelines, ensuring safety and comfort for all our students.
School shoes worn with navy or black trousers / pants / slacks are to be all black; the entire foot is to be enclosed by the shoe, including the upper section of the foot; the shoe is to have a stout sole and firm uppers; and, the shoe is to have low heels. School shoes worn with College tracksuit pants or College shorts are to be sports / athletic runners, they must be adequate for participation in sporting activity. Please keep in mind that choosing the correct sports shoes for your child will enhance their physical activity and provide sound protection for their feet and body.
Don’t forget: School shoes are to be all black; the entire foot is to be enclosed by the shoe, including the upper section of the foot; the shoe is to have a stout sole and firm uppers; and, the shoe is to have low heels.
Scarves, hijabs, beanies, hats, caps, gloves, socks and tights are to be in plain navy, plain red or plain white with no logos/ labels. *It is expected that hats, beanies and hoods be removed when inside.
