BOWRAL HIGH SCHOOL FOOTWEAR REQUIREMENTS
When purchasing school shoes parents are asked to be mindful of NSW Department of Education and Communities, Work Health & Safety requirements regarding footwear. This requirement states that all students involved in practical activities in subject areas including Creative Arts, Industrial Arts, Home Economics, and Science must wear: "shoes with fully enclosed firm leather uppers, including the tongue, and a stout non-slip sole".
This requirement is satisfied through the purchase of black leather, lace up school shoes as per the school's uniform policy. Joggers, volleys, canvas shoes and ballet flats do not provide adequate protection and are therefore not acceptable.
Students who present themselves to class without the correct footwear will not be permitted to participate in practical activities and will be provided with an alternative theoretical task.
