The Stanthorpe State High School uniform has been chosen by a committee representing parents, teachers and students. The uniform has been endorsed by the Parents and Citizens Association and is valued within the local community. The appearance of students contributes significantly to the reputation of the school so all students are expected to wear the uniform in the manner in which it was designed and approved to be worn each day and to present a smart and tidy appearance.
Students are required to have at least one dress uniform and one practical uniform. The practical uniform may be worn on any day the student has physical education, sport or at the request of a subject teacher. Students studying VET certificates in years 11 and 12 which are predominantly delivered in a non-classroom environment may wear the practical uniform. On every other day, students must wear their dress uniform.
For excursions, students are required to be in full dress uniform (except where alternative
dress is stipulated on the excursion letter to parents).
Jewellery must conform with all aspects of the workplace health and safety act. The only items of jewellery permitted are: plain ear studs for pierced ears, a signet ring and a watch. No other jewellery should be visible. Hair should be clean and tidy and must be tied back for practical subjects. Shirts must be worn tucked in when students are in classroom situations.
School house hats should be worn for all outdoor activities.
