Toronto Catholic District School Board

Uniform and Appearance

 

PHILOSOPHY

The wearing of the proper uniform is an obligation incurred by students who chose to attend Bishop Allen Academy.  The overall neat appearance of the students contributes to the good order and atmosphere in the school community.  Our uniform policy conforms to the
“Code of Dress” guidelines of the Toronto Catholic District School Board and thus is mandatory.  The school crest, found on the various student tops, is a symbol that unites us in faith and community.
Students are expected to wear the school uniform at all times during the school day.  If a student is not in full uniform, he or she may not be admitted to class, may remain in the office for the day, may be sent home, and, for repeated violations, may be suspended.  Before sending a student home, the school will attempt to contact a parental guardian. Students 18 years and older will be signed out and sent home to change.
See the uniform requirements on the following page.  All items of the uniform must be purchased from R.J. McCarthy Limited, 360 Evans Avenue, Etobicoke, Ont., M8Z 1K5 (416) 593-6900.
 
McCARTHY’S ONLY POLICY
The “McCarthy’s only” policy means that all students, including seniors, must purchase their uniform items from McCarthy’s.  Facsimiles are not accepted as part of the uniform.
 
HEADGEAR
Hats, caps, visors, bandanas, nylon raps, handkerchiefs, or any other headgear may not be worn at school anytime, including civvies days.  If, the policy is not adhered to, the headgear may be confiscated.  Students may wear hair bands that are solid black or navy, and not more than an inch in width.
 
CIVIES DAYS
On non-uniform days, students are to dress appropriately/modestly (e.g., no halter tops or bare midriffs).  Students will be sent home for non-compliance.
