Frequently asked questions


​The information below will answer most questions, though if you wish for any further information please do not hesitate to ask us.

Can my child wear track pants?

Yes. They must be the school track pants (navy blue with the school name / logo). ‘The School Locker’ at Maroochydore has these currently in stock. No other track pants are permitted.

Can my child wear an undershirt?

YES, if it is not visible and under the school shirt. A school jacket would need to be worn then at all times.

What colour do shoe laces and socks need to be?

Our uniform policy states that show laces must be black. White visible socks must be worn with shoes at all times.

What hat is required and is this compulsory?

The school bucket hat is purchased through ‘The School Locker’.  It can either be plain navy or the reversible (house colour) style with school logo. It is compulsory for students in years 7-9. If students do not wear a hat they must play and sit in the shade.

Why do students have to wear formal uniform on a Tuesday?

As this is our day of our formal assembly, students as a collective body are to present in this uniform as special guests and community members may be presenting on assembly and this time is used to access to celebrate special events. The formal uniform must also be worn on excursions (Marine and Sport may be excused) and when representing the school.

If my child has PE on a Tuesday, do they have to wear their formal uniform to this class?

If the PE class is practical on this day, then the student is requested to change into their sport polo shirt. This can be done prior to their PE lesson at first or second break. Please note that if the lesson is in period 1, 2 or 3, students are to change back into their formal uniform at break time.

Can I wear my sport representative (State, Sunshine Coast Region) jacket to school?

As this is not a school jacket, unfortunately not.

Can I wear my Surfing or Cheers sport representative jacket to school?

Yes as this is a SBSHS sport jacket.

Are there any second-hand items for sale?

Yes, the P&C regularly run Second Hand Uniform sales at school.  Check out the Sunshine Beach SHS P&C Facebook page for details.
