Jewellery 

Department of Education guidelines insist that jewellery or other items that could, with reasonable foreseeability, cause an injury to the student wearing it, or to other students, must not be worn at school. These guidelines provide for schools to instruct students to remove jewellery if it is considered dangerous. 

At Bankstown West Public School we consider acceptable items to be modest jewellery only, such as small studs or sleepers if ears are pierced. Excessive or large jewellery, including costume jewellery, is a health and safety hazard and will not be permitted at school. Items considered unsafe and therefore unacceptable include large earrings, bracelets, bangles, rings and necklaces. Some items of jewellery may be of religious or cultural significance. While these are acceptable, consideration should be given to the value of the item (monetary and emotional) as the school cannot be held responsible for loss or breakage. Where possible, such items should be kept out of sight. 

Furthermore, in order for a child to be allowed to wear such items parents will need to put in writing a request for approval to the school office. Medical alert jewellery is always permissible.
