Newtown High School of the Performing Arts (NHSPA) in Sydney is said to be letting students decide whether to refer to themselves as either male or female.
It's understood pupils at the school previously needed the backing of their parents and a psychologist to use alternative lavatories and wear the uniform of their choice, but this is no longer said to be the case.
Speaking with ABC Radio, Lyle Shelton, Managing Director of the Australian Christian Lobby expressed concern: "...these gender theory ideas go way beyond anti-bullying to almost proselytising and trying to encourage and instruct young people in radical practices such as binding their chest for girls, so their breasts don't develop properly, to tucking their genitals.
"A lot of parents are starting to ask questions about where on earth this rainbow ideology is taking us."
The change in uniform policy at (NHSPA) reportedly follows calls from students at the school.
Year 11 student, Jo Dwyer, told The Sydney Morning Herald: "Our aim was to remove the un-inclusive gender labels from the school uniform, and make it so that anyone could wear any aspect of the uniform without having to go through a long and difficult process."
A spokesman for the New South Wales Department of Education was quoted by the newspaper as saying all schools in the state were free to determine their own school uniform policy and pupils can choose any part of the available options.
