When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents, and carers, as well as members of our local community, helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation
  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics
  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities
  • is suitable for all body shapes.

School uniform procedures

Students at Bowral High School are expected to wear their uniform to school every day and when on excursions or representing the school.

Students MUST bring appropriate equipment and footwear for elective subjects and technology mandatory. RABEN footwear is NOT permitted, only joggers or lace up plain canvas shoes are acceptable forms of sports shoes.

If a student is unable to wear their uniform on a particular day they should bring a note from a parent or guardian to their roll teacher. 

Students who will be unable to wear their uniform for an extended period of time (5 or more days) need to bring a note to the Head Teacher responsible for their Roll Group.

Uniform will be checked each day in roll call by the roll call teacher. 

Students who do not follow uniform policy and procedures will be referred to the Head Teacher responsible for their Roll Group. The Head Teacher will counsel the student and, as needed, contact a parent or guardian to discuss school policy. Families suffering hardship may apply for assistance to help in meeting the cost of the uniform.

Bowral High School footwear requirements

When purchasing school shoes parents are asked to be mindful of NSW Department of Education, Work Health & Safety requirements regarding footwear. This requirement states that all students involved in practical activities in subject areas including Creative Arts, Industrial Arts, Home Economics, and Science must wear: "shoes with fully enclosed firm leather uppers, including the tongue, and a stout non-slip sole".

This requirement is satisfied through the purchase of black leather, lace-up school shoes as per the school's uniform policy. Joggers, volleys, canvas shoes, and ballet flats do not provide adequate protection and are therefore not acceptable.

Students who present themselves to class without the correct footwear will not be permitted to participate in practical activities and will be provided with an alternative theoretical task.
