Why School Uniform Matters
- Wearing a smart school uniform signifies self-respect, diligence, pride in the school and a pledge to learn. A student who is proud of their school is a student who is ready to learn.
- A smart and distinctive school uniform helps create the public perception that a school is high-performing and aspirational.
- In addition, wearing a uniform helps students prepare for the next stage of their education and career where personal presentation is a critical part of the interview process. Dressing smartly implies professionalism and excellence.
