Department of Education Media Release
16 July 2012
The Department of Education encourages students in Tasmanian government schools to wear school uniforms and maintain a neat and tidy appearance, General Manager, Learning Services South, Judy Travers, said today.
“Wearing make-up to school is covered in each individual school’s uniform policy, which is developed in consultation with the school association.
“Adhering to a uniform policy identifies students with their school and places all students on the same level in terms of clothing.
“While excessive use of make-up would certainly be discouraged, schools develop their own policy based on maintaining a presentable appearance, student safety and creating a sense of pride in the school.”
