Appropriate Dress Code
 Children modelling the different styles of the uniform
The Toronto Catholic District School Board implemented an Appropriate Dress Code in all of its elementary schools in September 2011.  The Appropriate Dress Code consists of a combination of white or navy blue tops and navy blue bottoms (e.g. plain white top, navy blue bottom or, navy blue top and bottom, no denim, no stripes, no logos, no 'jeggings', etc.). At all times, students are expected to wear clothing that is neat, clean, modest and appropriate for school activities.  Please note that the Dress Code at Our Lady of Fatima does not require that parents purchase any items from a particular supplier.
 
Periodically during the school year, at Our Lady of Fatima, ‘dress –down’ days will afford students the opportunity to wear clothing other than navy and white.  Even on ‘dress-down’ days, however, students are expected to wear clothing that is neat, clean, modest and appropriate for school activities. ‘Dress-down’ days are often used to support a charitable endeavour and those who participate are usually invited to make a small donation.
 
The many advantages for parents, students and schools are outlined in a question and answer pamphlet for parents.

This requires that all vendors provide assurances that the manufacturing of apparel is in keeping with the provisions and procurement requirements of the Suppliers Fair Labour Practices Agreement.
