Polos and slippers

Gift School children wear a school polo.


When children arrive at school wearing a school polo, this helps them make an easy transition into a learning environment that is naturally distinct from their home environment.

The school polo also helps children feel a sense of belonging to a group and allows them to be part of a larger “family” – a school community which is so important to their feeling secure at this young age.

School polos are strongly recommended but not mandatory.


We are a “slipper-friendly” school and we ask that both children and adults refrain from wearing their outdoor shoes, inside the school.


As a matter of respect for our school, for keeping it clean, for protecting the wooden floors… wearing slippers indoors is our way of taking care of our beloved school.

But also … to feel a bit like we’re at home!
