At SWS we adhere to the CBE's Administrative Regulation - Standards of Dress and Grooming. This can be viewed as a link on this webpage.
Student dress code is aimed at establishing and maintaining reasonable standards of dress for all school activities and should be appropriate for the professional learning environment. Just as there is a mode of dress suited to office work, to the playing field or gymnasium, to various social or formal functions; there is also a mode of dress suited to each subject area and classroom. Students must come to school appropriately dressed to promote a positive learning environment.
Students should also be dressed for all weather conditions and be prepared to spend some time outside during the day, particularly at lunch time and for Physical Education. We ask that parents support the school with this policy, as we understand that your own expectations for home may be different. Students clothing should reflect the fact that they are in a professional learning environment.
Clothing that advertises the use of drugs or alcohol, makes sexual inferences or innuendo or that has crude language, is unacceptable. Students who do not follow the recommended dress guidelines will be asked to put on alternative clothing, and in some cases, may be asked to go home and change after their parents have been contacted.
