    School Uniform – Endorsed by the School Board 04.09.18

    Student Uniform Availability

    All school uniform items are obtainable from the school’s onsite Uniform Shop run by Midford School Uniforms.

    School Uniform

    All students are required to wear school uniform. The uniform is serviceable, economical and assists in the development of pride in one’s self and one’s school. Australind Senior High School has established a reputation for students being neatly and properly dressed. Parents will be notified in writing if any additions to the uniforms are approved by the School Board. From time to time students will be allowed to dress for theme dress days.

    It is acknowledged that from 2019 there will be an adjustment to the new uniform for students across Year 7 – 9. As a result, a transition period will be applied to ensure that families do not experience any hardship due to this change. Students in the lower years may wear out their existing uniform before the transition period closes. This transition period will cease at the end of 2019. All students will abide by these uniform expectations from the start of 2020.

    School Wear

    From the start of 2019 Year 7 – 9 students will wear:

    School crested maroon polo shirt with dark grey underarm panels (the transition period will apply)

    From the start of 2019 Year 10 – 12 students should wear School crested white polo shirt with maroon underarm panels.

    For all years:

    A plain white, short sleeve T-shirt may be worn under the school polo shirt

    School crested dark grey airflow shorts with maroon trim.

    Any variation to the requirement for suitable footwear will be communicated to parents where there are specific health and safety requirements.

    Item such as thongs, scuffs, slip-on’s, Ugg boots, shoes with built up heels or other unsafe features are not acceptable for school because they are unsafe in this environment.

    Hats – For health reasons hats are encouraged rather than caps (preferably in school colour). Any hat or cap with an inappropriate logo or message cannot be work on school grounds.

    Formal Occasions

    Stockings – Where students wear stockings especially for formal occasions with the formal school uniform, they will need to be grey or skin tone.

    Note: All denim is banned at this school. No other colours or items should show under uniform items, e.g. coloured t-shirts, long sleeves under short sleeves, long tops under shirts etc.


    BEHAVIOUR

    The Behaviour Management System provides the mechanisms for establishing a safe, secure and orderly environment in which effective teaching and learning can take place. It is a whole school approach that works to reinforce the rights and responsibilities of all members of the school community (students, parents and teachers) thereby ensuring positive interaction between all members of that community.

    The system has drawn upon community practices and expectations in order to establish a code of conduct that addresses the roles of all members of Australind Senior High School’s community. It outlines a number of levels of support, management procedures and the provision of personnel resources as a means of facilitating the creation and maintenance of welcoming, safe and supportive learning environments. This system is one strategy to promote a positive learning environment. Other strategies that complement the system include the quality of the classroom climate, pastoral care, a relevant curriculum, anti harassment policies and acceptable conflict resolution.

    The prime goal of this system remains to have members of the school community accept responsibility for their own behaviour and respect the rights of others. Students are encouraged to make choices and to accept the consequences of these choices. The outcome of this process is self-motivation and self-discipline


    GOOD STANDING POLICY

    Australind Senior High School has implemented a “Good Standing Policy” to encourage our students to prepare for the transition from School and ensure success in further education, training or employment.

    The “Good Standing Policy” provides a system that assists in ensuring that students maintain a satisfactory level of attendance, course participation and behaviour. The “Good Standing Policy” does not replace the Behaviour Management Policy, but provides a specific framework or standard of behaviour expected from our students in order to maintain their “Good Standing” status.

    How do students lose it?

    How do they get it back? Students will be ineligible to regain “Good Standing” for the remainder of that term.

    D. Non Completion of work

    Teachers can nominate students that have work outstanding to lose their “Good Standing” This can be done after alerting parents that the work is overdue and student’s still not responding and completing the set work within a reasonable time frame.

    What does it mean if Student’s lose their “Good Standing?”
    Student’s who have lost “Good Standing” are ineligible to take part in non essential school activities during the period that they do not have “Good Standing”. This includes reward excursions, sports carnivals/ games, school ball/ dinner dance and country week etc…

    Note Students who lose their “Good Standing” due to behaviour after the naming of the country week team can be excluded from the team at the discretion of the Principal.
