School Uniforms

A school uniform is a mark of distinction and should be worn correctly and with pride. One of the intentions of having uniforms is to create a sense of unity and to reduce competition on a material plane. No exceptions to the uniform will be made. Whenever a student is wearing her uniform, at school or away from school, she is expected to behave in an appropriate manner.
