Blackburn High School is committed to students wearing their school uniform with pride. We believe the uniform is a vital part of developing and maintaining our high standards. Wearing the school uniform correctly is important because it represents the pride and respect we have for the school and more importantly for ourselves. Attention to personal presentation develops habits of self-discipline and responsibility which are skills essential in a 21st Century education.
