A new uniform policy has been introduced for NSW public schools, which for the first time include the option for girls to wear shorts and pants.
The Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, and the Minister for Education, Rob Stokes, announced the new "clear and concise" policy today at Condell Park Public School in Sydney.
Ms Berejiklian said the "modern makeover" would ensure that uniforms were practical and comfortable for students and affordable for parents.
The new policy says all students should have the opportunity to access the full range of school activities while wearing a school uniform, including physical activities, and girls must have the option to wear shorts and pants.
We would like to pay our respects and acknowledge to the the Bundjalung people, the traditional custodians of the land on which we learn and work together and commit to building relationships, respect and opportunities for all Aboriginal people in our community. We pay respect to Elders both past and present.
