Queensland Department of Education and Training (DET)

Student Dress Code

The DET Policy and Procedure Register, Student Dress Code states that:

Student dress codes…are consistent with health and safety considerations and anti-discrimination legislation. Student dress codes offer gender neutral uniform options for all students.

Thus all state schools in Queensland that do not offer girls the options of shorts and long pants appear to be in contravention of DET’s policy.
