We believe that a uniform dress code is an important part of a safe, orderly school environment where the focus is on student learning. A higher standard of dress encourages greater respect for individual students and others and results in a higher standard of behavior. Our dress code guidelines indicate appropriate school dress for normal school days.
Students are expected to follow these guidelines. Every student in attendance will wear a school uniform.
Uniform shirts are available through the school’s vendor (LCT Uniforms, Y6/1, Sh. Hamdan Colony,
