In making the decision to attend Assumption Catholic Secondary School, students have made a commitment to comply with the school uniform policy from their time of arrival to the end of period 5 each school day.

It is the student’s responsibility to wear the uniform properly. A student who is not in proper uniform will not be admitted to class without the Principal or Vice-Principal’s authorization. The Principal and Vice-Principal(s) have been authorized to send home, as appropriate, any student who is not in uniform.

The following are the possible consequences if students are in contravention of the uniform policy:

First incident – verbal warning
Subsequent incidents – detention

Please note that multiple or serious uniform infractions, including defiance, may lead to possible suspension.

Parents and students should note that students who need to wear non-regulation footwear will be required to produce a medical note informing the school of the time period required for this uniform exemption.

Hats, visors, caps, headbands, bandanas or any other headgear are not to be worn in the school at any time. Also, they are not to be brought to any class. These items, along with non-uniform sweaters and jackets, are subject to confiscation if worn in the building or if brought to class. Girls may wear navy blue or black hair bands provided they are no wider than 2.5 cm.

Open-toed sandals are not part of the school uniform and, therefore, are not to be worn on the school grounds.

Students may wear a plain white t-shirt under the uniform shirt or blouse. Plain white means no writing, no logos, and no diagrams.

There are no substitutions to the Assumption Catholic Secondary School Dress Code.

All regular Civvies’ day rules apply. They include:

  • No beachwear
  • No hats
  • No ripped or torn clothing
  • No chains, dog collars or studded jewellery etc.
