Uniform Policy

We are a uniform school! The purpose of the school uniform is to assist in creating a positive learning environment that is free of distractions and disruptions and to encourage students to represent the school in a positive light while fostering a sense of community.

General notes:

The Dickie brand items are available at various department stores.
When layering items, care should be taken that the colour of the under layer not show through the upper layer.

When hemming the kilt (hemmed to no shorter than 3 in. or 7.5 cm above the knee) it might be wise to consider the fact that most students grow during their high school years.
Halpern’s, our uniform supplier, has a guarantee on all our uniforms against manufacturing defects for one school year. While you should expect a certain amount of wear and tear, if you experience unraveling of knitwear, excessive pilling, or fading, apply to Halpern’s for the guarantee.
