Guidelines for wearing the school uniform

In making the decision to attend Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School students and parents have made a commitment to comply with and support the school uniform policy.

Complying with the school dress code

  • Students must be in complete uniform, worn properly and modestly, from the time they enter the school building until dismissal at the end of the school day, including lunch periods in all areas of the school.
  • All clothing items must be the original style and condition. Ripped, torn, defaced, stained or unhemmed items are not permitted.
  • A plain white T-shirt only shall be worn under a uniform dress or golf shirt/blouse or school hoodie. Please note a long-sleeve T-shirt is not to be worn under a short sleeve shirt/blouse or golf shirt. In addition, plain white means no logos, sayings, pictures or graphics of any kind.
  • A uniform shirt/blouse must be worn underneath uniform sweaters, with the exception of the hoodie (plain white t-shirt, but a uniform shirt must be worn if the hoodie is removed).
  • Non-uniform sweaters are NOT to be worn in the school building. Jackets/coats and non-uniform sweaters are to be removed upon entering the building. This includes all Spirit clothing purchased through a co-curricular activity.
  • Hats are never worn in the school, including civvies days and exam days. Hats will be confiscated if worn in the building. Also, they are not to be brought into any class.
  • The waist of the dress slacks is to be worn at the student’s waist.
  • Pant legs are not to be worn inside the socks. In addition, pant legs are not to be rolled up at all and must be properly hemmed. Walking shorts are not to be rolled up and the school logo must be visible.

The Administration reserves the right to decide on appropriate attire.

  • School spirit wear is NOT to be worn in place of the proper uniform items.
  • Physical Education uniforms must be purchased through the Phys Ed Department and should provide for comfortable, modest and safe movement during activities.

Only students who are in complete uniform will be admitted to class.
