Living and learning through relationships is a cornerstone of our community. Students and staff worked together to create a dress standard that minimizes negative interactions, promotes healthy and positive relationships and enables students to feel comfortable and confident in their learning environment.Lakefield College School prides itself on a dress standard that is gender-inclusive and provides its students with comfortable, flexible clothing in order to embrace our strategic directions of Outdoors Every Day, Authentic Learning, and Community First.
Staff are expected to adhere to the same standard of dress as students. Should a student have questions, concerns or ideas about the school dress standard they are encouraged to engage in dialogue with any staff member to have their voice heard.
This dress standard outlines the clothing needed at Lakefield College School for all program activities. Students must be in standard or formal dress in the school block during the academic day (from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm).
In keeping with its environmental value, Lakefield seeks corporate partners for dress that manufacture clothing in Canada or that make a strong commitment to sustainability in their business practices, or both. Many of our clothing pieces are manufactured by Top Marks, and students may also purchase pieces of Standard Dress from School Stores and preferred supplier Mountain Equipment Company.
To further reduce our environmental impact, the school encourages students to donate gently used Standard Dress and Formal Dress items that are no longer needed. Students may bring donation items to School Stores throughout the school year.
All clothing must be clean and in good repair.
