At St. Edmund’s School, there is a mandatory school uniform. The reasons for such a policy are the following:
- Respect for both the individual and school is manifested by a mind-set of “dressing up” for school. Therefore, the dress code has an impact on a student’s attitude as well as their behaviour.
- A neat personal appearance reflects a positive image of our school to the community
- It helps to reduce differences among children in regard to fashion
The St. Edmund’s dress code is based on modesty, neatness, cleanliness and safety. Students are expected to arrive and leave school in uniform each day. Families are responsible for keeping their child's uniform neat and clean in appearance. If clothes get torn or stained, they must be repaired or replaced. The dress code applies to all students during school hours or at school sponsored activities. Each month there may be a "dress up day" where students may wear clothes connected to the dress up theme.
