Uniform Policy

WHY UNIFORMS?DSC_0057

Research supports the idea of less social stereotyping when children are all dressed in like fashion. As a school, we believe uniforms benefit the child socially and academically. Uniforms promote a sense of community and school pride and keep the focus on academics and not attire.
