Dress and Uniform

Dress and Uniform

UC SSC Lake Ginninderra does not have a formal uniform. However, the appearance and clothes worn by students must be appropriate to the academic purposes of school.

The following guidelines outline expectations of students:

The UC Senior Secondary College Lake Ginninderra (UCSSCLG) dress guideline aims to account for the diverse nature of the school’s population and the economic, personal, social and cultural factors affecting students, staff and their families.

Students are expected to adhere to standards of cleanliness and dress that are compatible with the requirements of a positive and safe learning environment.

UCSSCLG students and staff have a responsibility to dress in a manner that avoids causing offence to others and abides by the safety requirements of particular courses.

Students representing the school at public events may be required to dress appropriately for the occasion.

UCSSCLG is a school promoting student wellbeing through numerous initiatives directed by the Education and Training Directorate such as the ‘SunSmart’ policy.  This encourages students to be sun safe when participating in outdoor activities.

Standards are defined as those generally acceptable to the community and suitable for the school setting.  In certain practical or specialised areas general safety and Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) rules must be applied to clothing and followed at all times, e.g. wearing enclosed footwear and appropriate attire around machinery.

If a student does not meet the expected dress standard they will be asked to change to more appropriate clothing and, if necessary, parents/carers will be contacted.
