Uniforms

The concept of school uniform serves two purposes – to instill a sense of belonging and pride in the school and also to eliminate any idea of competition in the matter of personal dress. Most schools have very precise requirements and every school issues a uniform list which covers all items for general day-to-day wear (often including shoes).

We live in a society where our character is judged by the way we dress; this judgment can cause tension in the school atmosphere. It is our hope that if all students are required to wear a mandatory uniform, students will become more accepting towards each other and be more focused on their work and not their appearance.

There is a difference between a dress code and a uniform policy. A dress code policy tells the students what they cannot wear. A uniform policy tells the students what they must wear.


Please adhere to the dress code to avoid having to call you to come and provide proper attire for your child.

 

Summer Uniforms are worn from opening day in September to September 30th, and from May 1st until closing.

Winter Uniforms are worn from October 1st to April 30th.

*For the months of December and January only, girls may wear navy twill pants instead of the kilt.
