School Uniform at Bega High School


Bega High School uniforms are supplied by Tuff-As which  is a locally owned and operated business, located at 118-120 Carp Street, Bega (next to the Carp Street entrance to Coles). 

Opening hours are 8:00am-5:00pm Monday to Friday and 8:30am-1:00pm Saturdays, excluding public holidays. 

The wearing of a uniform is school policy. Students are required to wear school uniform every day, unless otherwise advised and parents and carers are asked to support this.

Wearing the school uniform contributes to the development of school pride. It is economical and discourages peer competition to wear the latest fashion. Students in uniform are more readily identified with our school.
