What We Offer

Each school in NSW offers something slightly different depending on the community. Here's what we offer for you.


When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.

Learn more about the NSW Department of Education’s School Uniform Policy.

Hakusan City Council and Penrith Selective High School have a very successful exchange program that has been operating since 1993. Students visit each country in alternate years. The objectives of the program are to:

  • foster closer ties and improve relations between Australia and Japan
  • develop in students an understanding of another culture
  • consolidate and extend language skills
  • improve cooperation and collaboration with others

When our students visit Japan, the students stay with host families and are involved in a number of cultural activities

  • staying with a Japanese family
  • visiting schools
  • visiting museums
  • learning Japanese
  • experiencing Japanese culture, e.g. dressing in kimonos, playing Japanese drums, eating Japanese food

This long-standing program brings great benefits and opportunities to both our students and students from the Hakusan schools which participate.
