  • hoodies/hats/caps/bandanas/gloves/sunglasses worn inside school
  • language and/or representations on attire that indicates gang affiliation (e.g., gang colours/bandanas), that depicts violence, profanity, racial or gender discrimination or discrimination of any kind whatsoever, or that otherwise demeans an identifiable individual or group;
  • clothing with objectionable slogans that promote attitudes and behaviours that contravene the “Guiding Principles” of the St. Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic School, the TCDSB and the Provincial Codes of Conduct;

Students are required to bring a second change of clothing for physical education classes that are appropriate for physical activity (i.e. t‐shirts, shorts, running shoes). In addition, during the winter months, students will be required to keep a set of indoor shoes at school. Also, it is prudent for children in Kindergarten and the younger primary classes to have an extra change of clothes in their backpacks in the case of a bathroom accident or other such needs.
