Toronto Catholic District School Board

UNIFORM AND PERSONAL GROOMING

 

 

 

Respect for the school community can be fostered by the uniform.  It is a constant reminder of the ideals and objectives to which those who have come to the Choir School have committed themselves.
 
School uniform must be worn on all school days of the year.  The uniform must be worn to and from school. Within the building, no extras or over-clothes may be worn. If a student would like to wear something that is non-uniform they must speak with their teacher first.
 
Uniforms must be obtained from McCarthy Ltd., (Beatties Eglinton)
453 Eglinton Ave. W.
Telephone - (1-800-668-8261). 

 

Phys. Ed uniforms should only purchase through Entripy online http://smcs.entripy.com
 
School day uniform for elementary students (grades 3-8) consists of the dark blue pants, maroon shirt, maroon tie, a maroon sweater or a maroon quarter zip sweater.
 
School day uniform for high school students (grades 9-12) consists of grey pants, light blue shirt, maroon tie, navy blue sweater, navy blue quarter zip or navy blue blazer.
 
School day shoes for all students in grades 3-8 are black dress shoes, or athletic footwear that does not mark the floor. School day shoes for all students in grades 9-12 are solid dark shoes (black, dark brown, dark blue). Socks are required.  Sandals are not permitted.  In warm weather, when announced by the principal/vice-principal, students may wear the official crested golf shirt instead of the regulation shirt and tie. In the high school, the golf shirt is navy blue; in the elementary school, the golf shirt is maroon.  Elementary students may wear the dark blue shorts obtained from the uniform supplier as part of their warm weather uniform.
 
Students may start wearing the spring uniform after Victoria Day weekend and winter uniform after Thanksgiving weekend.
 
The uniform shirt or golf shirt is to be worn tucked inside the waistband of the uniform pants.  The shirt must be buttoned to the top button, and the tie must be worn with the knot high enough to cover the top button.                                                                             
 
Each student is expected to have his uniform clean and neat at all times. 
 
Appropriate athletic uniforms and athletic shoes are required to be worn in gym class and at athletic events.
 
A student may be allowed in school without some part of his uniform if he brings a parent's note.  This exemption should not be for more than one day.
 
Sunday uniform is worn for all official choir functions (except noon masses on school days), for piano and other instrument recitals, and for Closing Ceremonies.
 
For the Sunday uniform of elementary students, the pants are grey, the shirt is white, the tie is maroon and the blazer is maroon. 
 
High school students in Sunday uniform wear grey pants, a light blue shirt, a maroon tie and a navy blue blazer.
 
All students in Sunday uniform wear black leather dress shoes and black socks.
 
Respect for our school community can be continually fostered by personal appearance.
 
Personal appearance must be a priority for all students.  The practice of looking neat and clean every day at school enhances the ability to look good at all public appearances, each week in St. Michael’s Cathedral for Mass, and at all other choir obligations throughout the school year. The school reserves the right to determine what is acceptable in this area.     
 
Uniforms must be clean and neat at all times, and must not be altered except for proper fit.
 
Hair is to be neat and trim. Extreme or unconventional hair styles or colours which detract from the appearance of the choir are unacceptable. Hats or other headgear are not to be worn in school.
    
No facial hair is acceptable as part of the uniform for Choir School students; therefore beards and moustaches are not part of the uniform.
 
 Simple jewellery may be worn, such as a gold chain, provided that it is unobtrusive and does not detract from the uniform appearance.  No earrings may be worn.
 
 
If a student's personal appearance at school is unacceptable, he will be dealt with immediately by the school staff. 
          

 

If a student's personal appearance is unacceptable for a public Choir School function, he will be asked to correct the problem.  If this is not possible, the choir conductor or director may decide that the student will not be permitted to perform. In this case parents will be contacted as soon as possible.
