Khalsa School Calgary is proud of its heritage, tradition and foundation. Part of our culture is that we take pride in who we are, what we do and what we stand for. Our school uniform is a symbol of our school pride as well as one means of showing respect for our school.
Research has clearly indicated that school uniforms have a positive impact on the learning environment. There are many benefits associated with school uniforms which include the following:
Enhanced school safety and sense of well being
Improved learning environment
Enhanced self-esteem for students and reduction of peer pressure
Improving school climate and professionalism
As members of our Khalsa School Community students are required to be in proper school uniform (Regular or Full) at all times except on Bana or Casual Days which are noted in our school calendar. Students are expected to be well groomed and uniforms are to be clean.
When students are not in proper school uniform it is a sign of disrespect for our school, for our dress code and for our expectations for student behaviour. The lack of a proper school uniform is considered a student discipline matter and will be treated as such.
The Khalsa School Calgary Uniform must be purchased from Elegant Design. All components of our school uniform will have our school crest and/or school initials (KSC) embroidered or silk screened on the article of clothing. Gym strip is optional for Grades 4 – 6. Gym strip is mandatory for Grades 7 – 9.
