The vast majority of parents, who have been surveyed about school uniforms, have supported the idea that school uniforms should be worn. Uniform monitoring occurs on a daily basis and a comment recorded on half yearly and yearly reports. Most prospective employers find this information very important.
WHY DO WE HAVE A SCHOOL UNIFORM?
Uniforms identify you in several ways:
Firstly, it allows the community to see you clearly as a student of Albion Park High School. If we are proud of our school we should wear our uniform, which is our identity, with pride. A school is like a cricket team; you would not see the Australian cricket team complain about their team colours or design. They wear their uniform with pride and this helps create a feeling of team spirit as well as better team performance.
Secondly, uniforms do not discriminate. It does not matter whether you are rich or poor, you can look presentable with a minimum of expense.
Finally there is the safe aspect. In certain areas of the school (e.g. Industrial Arts) protective clothing, notably footwear, is essential for personal safety.
