School uniform will be applicable to all grade students. 

Our recommended retailer for PTAA uniforms will be Parker uniforms (Please see address below). However, generic khaki pants, shorts and oxford shirts can be picked up from any other store. For special event days like picture day, we would like all grade students to have the PTAA monogram blazer, sweater, plaid skirt or jumper that is available through Parker Uniforms.

 

Why school uniform is important

  • Having all the students wearing the same uniform helps to create a sense of belonging and a good school ethos (culture or spirit). 
  • Schools with uniforms obtain better educational results. Uniformity and continuity improves discipline and such school setting makes learning easier. 
  • Uniform is a social leveler - it makes all the children at a school equal no matter what their family background or income. 
  • Uniform has practical advantages for parents and students. Students and parents don’t have to spend time thinking what to wear at the start of each school day. The clothes are designed to be comfortable and safe, with no long trailing sleeves, skirts or hoods to catch on dangerous equipment in PE or science lessons. 
  • Uniform is cheaper than letting students choose what they will wear to school.  There is usually a much smaller overall cost for the parents.
