School Uniform

SCHOOL UNIFORM AND APPEARANCE

While in school students are required to dress in the correct school uniform. The school uniform is compulsory for all students and can be purchased from the school, through the homeroom teacher or the office. All students must arrive and leave school wearing the school uniform. They may not arrive in casual clothes and then change into the uniform. Nor may they change out of their uniform before they leave the school. The regulation school uniform must be worn throughout the day except during physical education classes (P.E.) when the regulation P.E. uniforms are required. Students are advised to sew name tags into the uniforms to assist in the return of lost items. Students are allowed to wear overcoats, scarves and hats on campus but not in the building or classroom. In the advent of a dis-pute the GIS management and administration retains the right to define what is and isn’t appropriate ion school premises.
