School uniform

Bossley Park High School has a long history of exceptional school uniform, it is expected that the uniform will be worn with pride. All uniform is to be worn as designed, and not altered in any way. If for any reason a student is out of uniform, the student must bring a note of explanation from their parent/caregiver and obtain a uniform pass from the Head Teacher Student Welfare.


The school has occupational health and safety regulations which are in accordance with the Department of Education and Communities policy.  These must be followed by all students at all times.


No student will be disadvantaged in regard to school uniform because of his/her family's financial difficulties.  Parents experiencing such difficulties are encouraged to speak in confidence with the Head Teacher Student Welfare.  In addition, there is good quality clothing at very reasonable prices available in our Community Support Group Clothing Pool.
