Deception Bay State High School is a uniform school. We have the support of our Parents and Citizens’ Association to promote adherence to the uniform.

Our student dress code consists of an agreed standard and items of clothing, which includes a school uniform that Deception Bay State High School students wear when:
·       attending or representing their school
·       travelling to and from school
·       engaging in school activities out of school hours
·       participating in sporting activities

Deception Bay State High School Parents and Citizens’ Association supports a student dress code policy because it believes that a student dress code provides clothing that aims to contribute to a safe and supportive teaching and learning environment through:
·       identifying students and non-students at school
·       fostering a sense of belonging
·       developing mutual respect among students by minimising visible evidence of economic or social differences
·       promoting an effective teaching and learning environment by eliminating the distraction of competition in dress and fashion at the school
·       ensuring adherence to our Sun Safe Policy
Deception Bay State High School students’ dress code reflects school community standards and is consistent with occupational health and safety and anti- discrimination legislation.

We actively encourage our students to take pride in themselves and their school. One way in which this may be achieved is through adherence to the school’s dress standards. As the parent/carer and provider of your child, we seek your support in this matter.

On ‘Casual Dress’ days, organised by the student council, students must always wear appropriate dress for a school day.  Inappropriate dress refers to clothing or apparel worn by students that is deemed to be:
·       Offensive
·       Likely to disrupt, or negatively influence normal school operations
·       Unsafe for student or others
·       Likely to result in a risk to health and safety of student or others
The school colours are maroon and white. Students are expected to be clean and well groomed. School dress is to be neatly and tidily worn.

The formal uniform must be worn on Monday and is compulsory for Excursions, Formal Assemblies and Formal Occasions at the school. eg. Awards Night, Senior Investiture and Graduation. The general uniform can be worn on all other days and for sport. 
Students are also expected to carry their ID with them at all times and produce it when requested. The student ID is given to students on enrolment. Replacement IDs are available from the office.
Price lists are available in the Parent Handbook:
If your child has outgrown their uniform and you would like to donate it to the school inform the office staff.
