Dress Code

Our school is special because it is a Catholic School and we have Christ as our example. This gives us the important responsibility of acting in a Christian manner at all times. What we wear speaks volumes and therefore we should all wear appropriate clothing to school. Clothing with narrow strapped tops, crop tops or short shorts and skirts are not acceptable. Hats are not to be worn inside the building. The length of shorts should be above the knee for all Gr. 4-8 students. If leggings are worn under a short skirt or shorts the skirt or shorts must be of an appropriate and acceptable length. St. Vincent de Paul also has a no makeup policy for all students.
