Dress Code

Uniforms are mandatory at Saint John Paul II Catholic School.

After consultation with the community, and much good work by the Catholic School Council and staff, the Saint John Paul II School Uniform Policy was instituted in September, 2005.

SJPII has a “standardized dress” which means that the school community has determined that students will dress in clothing of common colour and style. (Board Policy 2194A, Section 3.3).

We continue to encourage our students to wear their uniforms proudly. Please ensure that our school crest is sewn or attached permanently to students’ shirts and sweaters.
