New uniform policy for Narrabri High School

Policy designed to prepare students for the world beyond school and to meet community expectations

NEW LOOK: Modelling the new uniforms are Narrabri High School Year 9 students Amelia Smith, Meagan Dampney, Breeana Smith, Keegan Richardson and Sara Charles with Year 11 student Lara Schmiede and relieving principal Dinos Charalambous. The uniform was brought in this year for Year 7 and 11 students but will be compulsory for all students from next week.

A desire to meet community expectations and to help prepare students for life beyond the classroom has led Narrabri High School to implement its new uniform policy throughout the school. From next Tuesday, August 8, all students will be required to wear the new uniform, which was brought in at the start of this year for Year 7 and 11 students.
The appearance of some school students has been a concern raised by community members for some time and the P and C has acted.
Relieving principal Dinos Charalambous said there was a clear reason for instituting the policy across the school.
“Ultimately what you wear doesn’t really reflect what you learn unless it’s a safety issue,” he said.
“But that’s not the point. Schools are all about learning, but it’s not just subject matter. It’s about life and community expectations."
