After consultation with the school's P&C it was decided that Karabar
High School should be a full uniform school. The school is committed to
supporting this decision by ensuring that students are dressed in correct
school and sport uniform as required.
Uniform gives students a sense of belonging and creates an identity for
the school in the community - it reflects school pride and discipline.
Wearing uniform also helps students prepare for the workplace - where
expectations around appropriate or regulatory clothing and/or uniform may
be in place.
NSW public school students are expected to 'comply with the
school's uniform policy or dress code' as outlined in the NSW Department of Education Behaviour Code for
If a student is out of uniform due to unforeseen circumstances, they are
required to provide a note from home explaining why they are not in
uniform and when this situation will be rectified. This note should be
presented to the Administration Office.
Failure to wear uniform may result in the student not being allowed to
represent the school or attend major functions or excursions. Persistent
refusal to wear uniform will be discussed with parents/carers and further
action then decided.
Sport uniform (Years 7-10)
On Stage Sport days, students are allowed to wear their sport uniform to
school for the entire day. Stage sport for 2021 will be held in
Periods 3-4 every Wednesday.
If students have a PE practical lesson for Period 1, they may come to
school in their sport uniform, but they need to get changed into proper
school uniform at the end of the lesson. Students are required to get
changed in/out of their uniform for all other PE practical lessons.
Uniforms can be purchased at Lowes in Queanbeyan. See the price list or go online to purchase.
