Raising Expectations – Uniform

Dear Parent/Carer and Students,

Several weeks ago you received the first communication from the College with regard to our 2015 focus on raising expectations and the wearing of the prescribed Lyndhurst Secondary College Uniform.  Students have also  been advised of changes and expectations for next year by College staff. Further to this communication, we have placed posters around the school, which outline the uniform expectations for next year.

Essentially, there are few changes to the uniform itself, but ‘close enough’ will no longer be’ good enough’. The emphasis in 2015 has been placed on the implementation of the policy and dress code and the consequences of non-compliance. Sanctions include, confiscation of non-uniform items where possible (which will be returned in the middle or end of a term only), detentions or withdrawal from class. In the case of multiple breeches of non-compliance a suspension may be issued.

We have a strong commitment to further enhance the positive image of the school within our local community and to ensure a safe and orderly environment for our young people. Having students who respect and adhere to the uniform dress code is an integral part of establishing and maintaining such an orderly environment. A student dress code also engenders pride and creates a sense of belonging.

Please familiarise yourself with the updated,  ‘Student Uniform & Dress Code Policy and Procedures’ (see link below), taking particular note of the requirements for shoes and seasonal changes to uniform.

We thank you for your ongoing support and assistance in creating a sense of belonging.

Regards,

Annette Gardner
