Dress Code / School Colours / Gym Uniform

Saint Monica's Governing Board has adopted a mandatory dress code for all students in the school (Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 6). the aim of this dress code is to ensure that students dress in a manner that reflects the serious purpose of the school, while making the students easily identifiable to staff, especially on field trips and during extra-curricular activities.

Parent cooperation is vital and appreciated to support the school in enforcing the dress code.

Specifically, students are required to dress as follows:

Navy blue tunic, skirt, pants or walking shorts (knee-length or longer). No jeans or leggings are permitted.

White tops: collared blouse or shirt, polo shirt or turtleneck. No t-shirts are permitted.

Gym Uniform

The gym uniform has a colour code for Grades 1 to  6, which may be purchased from the school in September (one t-shirt and one pair of shorts).  Students will receive an order form on the first day of school to select sizes; all Grade 1 to 6 students are expected to wear the uniform colours by September 30.  

  • T-Shirt: a grey t-shirt  (St. Monica is written in navy blue on the front if the item is purchased through the school).
  • Shorts: navy blue in colour, (St. Monica is written in white across one of the legs if the item is purchased through the school).

K4 and K5 students may wear a white T-shirt and navy blue shorts. Parents of pre-school students have the option of purchasing St. Monica gym clothing should they wish to do so.

Winter Wear

Students must wear boots during the winter months. Boots are not permitted in class; students must have a pair of shoes in school for indoor use. Students spend 15-20 minutes outdoors at recess and lunch time so they must be warmly dressed with winter coats, snow pants, scarves, hats and gloves.
