Uniform

Uniform policy

 

Students at CLIP wear a school uniform that helps to foster a sense of identity amongst the school community and contributes to the personal safety of students by allowing easier recognition both inside or outside the school. The personal appearance of students should reflect individual pride, as well as respect for their school and their community.

All students must wear the appropriate uniform at all times, including field trips.  

 

Uniforms are sold at the CLIP shop. All items of clothing should be labelled with the student’s first and last name.
