SHSG Non Uniform Rationale

Non uniform days are an opportunity for our school community to raise funds for a charity by donating money to not wear uniform for the day. You are still ambassadors for and represent SHSG on your journey to and from the school. As such, you are expected to dress in an appropriate and professional manner.  ‘Non-uniform’ days are common place in working environments and are often called ‘dress down days’. In a work place there are still expectations set as to what is appropriate to wear. In our role to prepare you for work places, you are expected to dress in an appropriate manner in the same way you would for a dress down day in a professional working environment.
