Uniforms

Please take a moment to review our Uniform Policy:

The purpose for having a uniform in place at Powell River Christian School is to help reinforce the identity of our school and to provide a safe and modest learning environment. All uniform pieces are required to be purchased through the uniform providers Cambridge Uniforms and Taws Cycle & Sport Shop. No substitutions, additions or variations from other retailers.

Uniform is to be worn each day. Students from Grades 3-9 will change into their PE clothing for PE classes. It is your responsibility to ensure that your child is wearing the correct uniform items from the supplier at the beginning of the school year. Parents are asked to label all clothing, shoes, or personal items that are intended for regular school use. This prevents a lot of misunderstandings when similar items are purchased by different students.

Please note that in an addendum has been made to the shoe requirement for students. Although our ideal is for students to wear dark shoes, this can often be a challenge with our limited store providers. Therefore, any colour shoes will be permitted so long as they are closed toed, securely fitted, and non-marking. Boots are only permitted during outdoor learning time and for commuting to and from school.

Socks / Footwear

Girls should wear black tights or knee socks with Kilts and Tunics. Boys should wear dark coloured socks. Students should wear appropriate dark (black, brown, navy blue) footwear while in the school or on school grounds. Students in elementary are expected to leave a pair of non-marking indoor shoes at the school - these shoes can be used for P.E. For hygienic and safety reasons, students will not be allowed to go about in socks or bare feet. Beach foot wear is not acceptable.

Student Appearance

Appropriate dress is expected of all students throughout the school day and good grooming is equally important. It is the responsibility of both students and parents to commit to understanding and following the PRCS Uniform Policy.

A written notice to parents will be sent home with students that do not comply with the uniform requirements as set out above. After 3 notices the parent will be contacted by the Principal.

The PRCS School Board are responsible for the PRCS Uniform Policy. This Policy has been approved and adopted by the HLCS School Board on November 24, 2015.
