College Dress Code is monitored on a daily basis. Non-compliance can affect whether a student is eligible to attend or participate in school events such as the College Ball, Spring Dance, Carnivals and other reward activities. Unless otherwise instructed, students are asked to wear College uniforms on excursions. Students refusing to follow college dress code will not be permitted to enter the school cafeteria – students can access an external service window for purchases. Students not in full college dress code will be directed to a designated part of the school for their recess and lunch break times. Ongoing non-adherence to the dress code will require a parent/student meeting with the college administration.
