School Uniform

Green Bay High School
All students, except Year 13, wear our school uniform. This encourages a sense of identity with the school and provides a common standard of grooming on which to build positive attitudes to neatness and cleanliness. It also provides a measure of security by identifying non-students on the school property.

Our Uniform is gender neutral, supporting the diversity of our student population. The uniform should be neat, clean, tidy, smart and worn as designed. Our uniform has a wide range of items to choose from so all students should be able to find a suitable combination.

Education in New Zealand is universal, compulsory and secular – and so are our school uniform and dress code guidelines. However, we recognise that some people may wish to depart from our dress regulations for cultural or religious reasons. In these circumstances, the parent or guardian should discuss this issue with Deputy Principal/Student Services, Sandy Begg on 817-8173 ext 216.

Grooming and Presentation Related to the School Uniform

At Green Bay High School all students, except Year 13, wear the school uniform. This will  encourage a sense of identity with the school, and provides a common standard of grooming on which to build positive attitudes to neatness and cleanliness. It also provides a measure of security by identifying non-students on the school property.

GENERAL

  • Students must abide by the uniform/dress code regulations as agreed at enrolment. Uniform and dress code standards apply when travelling to and from school or on official off-campus activities.
  • Generally permission will not be given to wear non-regulation items. However, in some limited circumstances this will be considered by the Deputy Principal – Student Services. Such requests must be made in writing by a parent or guardian, and will only apply for a specified time.
  • Any student who is wearing an incorrect or inappropriate item of clothing is required to report to one of the deputy principals before school, or to the Dean on Duty at the beginning of period 1 so that the matter can be remedied before classes for the day. Students will be expected to remove non-uniform items, and will have them replaced for the day by school owned items.  These items are to be returned to student reception at 3.15pm. School-wide consequences apply when this procedure is not followed.
  • On school mufti-days, the Year 13 dress code applies to all students.

GROOMING FOR STUDENTS IN UNIFORM – Year 9-12
The uniform should be neat, clean, tidy, smart and worn as designed.  Our uniform has a wide range of items to choose from so all students should be able to find a suitable combination.

  • Shoes must be plain black, flat, and lace up.
  • Extreme hairstyles and/or artificial colouring are unacceptable. Hair accessories (hair bands/ties etc) must be navy blue or black in colour only

  • Jackets and jerseys must be only the regulation design and pattern.  School sports team jackets are only to be worn for sports events.

  • School caps, beanies and scarves can be worn as part of the uniform, and purchased from the school uniform shop.  Caps or beanies may not be worn inside.  No other caps, beanies or scarves may be worn.

GROOMING FOR YEAR 13 STUDENTS
While Year 13 students wear mufti, they have an obligation to meet a grooming and presentation standard which is not less than that expected for other students.

  • The choice of clothing for mufti must be appropriate for a co-education school and worn with regard to safety especially in the laboratories, PE and workshop areas.  This includes skirts or shorts of a suitable length, and no ‘spaghetti’ straps or halter neck tops.
  • Students must select clothing, which is neat, tidy, not worn out or dirty.  It must have no objectionable or offensive messages or pictures.
