School Uniforms Policy
The Northern Territory Department of Education School Uniforms policy was updated in 2018. We were very pleased to see that it does now directly address the need for schools to offer girls shorts and pants as part of their everyday uniform. The policy states that:
“Schools are required to offer uniform options that are similar for all students and include shorts and long trousers for girls, available as every day wear” (p.1).

If your school is not following the Department’s policy write to the department so that they can take action.
