SCHOOL UNIFORM

​By choosing to attend a Dufferin-Peel Catholic Secondary School, students and their parents have made a serious and long-term commitment to Catholic education.  The uniform is part of that commitment. School uniforms should be worn proudly and must be worn in good repair.  School uniform items (other than shoes) must be purchased from the Board approved supplier, R.J. McCarthy Ltd.(2501 Beryl Road, Oakville​). The uniform policy of the schools must be strictly adhered to.    

Uniform Expectations​​

  • Students are to be in full and proper uniform throughout the entire school day (8:27 am to 2:25 pm), both within the school and while on school property.  School/school property includes, but is not restricted to, classrooms, hallways, the Cafeteria, the Gymnasium and the Library.
  • A student missing a uniform item is expected to report to the office prior to 8:27am to see their appropriate Vice Principal.
  • Students are to wear the school uniform when representing the school at an out-of-school event. The school uniform will be worn on all educational field trips unless the nature of the trip warrants other attire, as approved by the school principal.  
  • Students who repeatedly violate the Uniform Policy are also in violation of the Catholic Student Code of Conduct and may receive a formal consequence.
  • Non-Uniform items (e.g. Hoodies, baseball hats, visors, bandanas, winter hats) are not permitted at anytime during the school day, before or after school activities and events, including lunch time, spares, and school games.
