What we offer

Each school in NSW offers something slightly different depending on the community. Here's what we offer for you.

Canteen

All canteens in NSW public schools must meet certain requirements. These include providing more healthy food and drink options – to make the healthy choice an easy choice for students. Visit Healthy school canteens to learn more.

Uniforms

When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.

School Uniform Policy

It is a requirement of attendance at Kelso High Campus that students wear school uniform

After extensive consultation with the Kelso High Campus Parent Focus Group, the Student Representative Council and teaching staff it has been confirmed that the Kelso High Campus community believes school uniform is a desirable feature of our school for the following reasons:

  • Safety of students – intruders into the ground are easily identified
  • Learning social responsibility
  • Promoting a positive image to our community
  • Training for the workplace
  • Uniform prevents competition
