Georges P. Vanier School Dress Code

Students clothing should reflect the fact that they are in a professional environment.  Appropriate dress is expected at all times; therefore, the following are inappropriate:

  • Clothing with derogatory, vulgar, suggestive printing or pictures.
  • Clothing advertising alcohol, drugs or cigarettes.
  • Articles of clothing, jewellery or accessories that indicate or suggest membership in a sorority, fraternity, secret organization or unauthorized student group or gang
  • Muscle shirts, crop tops, tube tops, bandanas
  • Hats and hoodies that cover the head. This is a safety and a learning issue. When staff can’t see faces we can’t be sure of who is in the building.  When students cover their heads, teachers can’t always be sure that earbuds aren’t in students’ ears. We want to optimize successful and respectful learning conditions for students.

If students choose to wear inappropriate clothing, parents will be contacted and students will be asked to return home to change.

Physical Education Dress Code

Georges P. Vanier gym strip (t-shirts and shorts) may be purchased from the school.

We sell shorts, t-shirts, sweats, and hoodies with the school logo. We encourage students to purchase Georges P. Vanier gym strip but it is not mandatory. School gym strip also acts as a uniform for some school athletic teams. 

Students may also choose to buy their own gym attire from an alternate source. It is imperative that students wear proper gym attire in order to participate in physical education. Proper gym attire consists of a t-shirt and shorts (different from the clothing a student wears to school) as well as proper athletic shoes. Low cut, scoop or v-neck shirts and tank -tops are not permitted as gym attire.  If a student chooses to wear these inappropriate clothing, they will be asked to change into a loaner set. Failure to bring proper gym attire may result in disciplinary consequences should the situation become recurrent.
