St. Gabriel School is a uniform school.  ALL students are expected to come to school dressed in the St. Gabriel school uniform on a daily basis.  The uniform has various pieces such as, short and long-sleeved golf shirts, skorts, pants, shorts, and sweaters.  InSchoolwear is the HCDSB’s chosen company that provides all of our students with uniforms.  They are located at: 1800 Appleby Line in Burlington.  Substitutions from other companies are not permitted.

At times, for charitable purposes, the school will hold Civvies Days, where students are permitted to come to school without their uniform.  However, it is expected that students dress appropriately and modestly. Appropriate attire does not include:

  • Halter tops
  • Shirts that do not cover the shoulder, back or midriff
  • Clothing with inappropriate pictures, logos, or sayings

Additionally, shorts should provide coverage and be comfortable to move in. Safe footwear is also encouraged, such as running shoes and closed-toe sandals that are securely strapped.
