Our new uniform
From Term 1 2020, all students at Greater Shepparton Secondary College will wear a new uniform to build their pride in the new school’s identity.
Students can wear summer, winter or a combination of both uniforms throughout the school year. In addition, Year 12 students can choose a bomber jacket and polo top.
The uniform was designed for all our students, and includes a hijab and long skirt options.
A committee of students and parents helped shape the new uniform design, which is formed by a colour palette of teal, charcoal and white, with orange highlights.
The $200 uniform package
Each enrolled student will be provided with a $200 uniform voucher for uniform items.
Families will receive the voucher in for redemption from one of the following uniform retailers:
- Supplier 1: Shepparton School Uniforms, 55 High Street, Shepparton
- Supplier 2: School Uniform Shop, 183 Corio Street, Shepparton
- Supplier 3: Quality Teams, 25-27 Benalla Road, Shepparton
State Schools Relief is available for eligible families, to assist with the cost of purchasing additional uniform items. For more information about this support, see: State Schools’ Relief – Affordable uniforms
Uniform voucher process
If your child is enrolled with GSSC in 2020, you should have received a form and information sheet about the uniform voucher process.
Parents/carers were asked to fill in the form indicating their choice of uniform retailer for each child, sign it and return to their current school.
Following receipt of the form, a voucher is prepared for each child to the value of $200 in the name of the requested uniform retailer.
These vouchers are progressively being provided to the four schools from State Schools Relief. The schools are arranging distribution of the vouchers.
If you have filled out your uniform form and have submitted it to your school, and have not yet received a voucher, it should be arriving soon.
Donate your old uniform
Greater Shepparton Secondary College asks for all parents and carers wishing to donate any old uniforms items to please drop them off at the main offices of either Wanganui, McGuire or Mooroopna colleges.
The three campuses are working together with Red Cross and 2020 VCAL students to design and implement a sustainable re-use program for the old uniforms.
**Update to uniform supply**
The uniform shops have a shortage in some uniforms. GSSC is working closely with suppliers to get those sizes back in stock and will have more updates on timeframes for students, parents and carers shortly.
For those students still waiting for some uniform items, if they have their PE uniform, they are able to wear that. Other items that are as similar as possible to the uniform, such as a white shirt (no logo), dark pants, shorts or skirt can also be worn.
