Lismore High Campus School Uniform


Safe footwear is a Work Health and Safety requirement for many school activities. Department of Education policy states: ―Thongs, open type sandals or shoes, canvas type shoes and joggers, shall not be worn in practical classes where there is a possibility of injury through spillage of hot liquids, metals, or the dropping of heavy or sharp instruments, tools, etc. While it is not possible to specify any one standard to meet all situations, shoes with stout sole and firm leather uppers are considered necessary. For this reason non-leather joggers are not safe for classes where the above issue could occur. As a result we require plain black leather shoes for all students at all times. Students are excluded from practical lessons if their shoes do not meet the requirements. The cooperation of parents is requested in ensuring that their children wear correct footwear.

When purchasing your child’s footwear, please use the following images as a general guide. All shoes MUST be full leather, plain black shoes and should NOT extend over the ankle or have a platform. The leather must cover the whole foot for safety. Students are expected to wear black leather upper shoes.

Joggers and runners for PDHPE and Sport

Sport shoes should be predominantly white (white socks), either lace up or Velcro. Black joggers (as pictured) are acceptable—worn with black socks. Shoes should be supportive of the feet during exercise. The whole of the upper foot must have a solid cover. Sports shoes are not to be worn at any time of the school day other than for practical PDHPE or sports day. They should be carried in the student’s bag and changed into for PDHPE classes.

At the conclusion of PDHPE classes, students should change their shoes back to plain, black leather school shoes. Incorrect sports shoes - Slip on sports shoes are not permitted. These include canvas shoes as they are not supportive or appropriate for sport and PDHPE.

Socks and Stockings

Socks should be either, plain white or black and should be worn approximately 2cm above the ankle. Footless leggings, knee length stockings are not permitted. Stockings can be worn with the Junior and Senior Skirt in neutral or black.
