Our Board of Management and school community believe that a clearly stated and sensibly implemented uniform policy is important for the following reasons:

  • To provide a focus and a sense of identity for students attending the school.
  • To provide an opportunity for parents and staff to instill in the children a sense of pride in their appearance.
  • To prevent excesses in fashion trends and to eliminate competition among students.
  • To provide an economic means of clothing children for school.

Implementation:

  • The Principal is empowered by the Board of Management to implement the approved uniform policy.
  • An explanatory note from parents/ guardians is required to be sent to the Principal if a child is not wearing the correct school uniform.
  • On nominated days designated by the school, (for example school excursions, school masses) parents/ guardians may receive a notification requesting that students all wear the full school uniform or the school tracksuit depending on the day.
  • The school uniform shop, The Schoolwear House, is located at 170 Walkinstown Road, Walkinstown, Dublin 12 (Contact Number: 01 4566188). The school jumper and the tracksuit top must be purchased at The Schoolwear House. This is the only supplier authorised by the Board of Management. To keep costs to a minimum, all other items may be purchased elsewhere.
  • The school tracksuit is worn on PE days only. These are subject to change.
