Uniforms help build school spirit based on a sense of unity and identification with a special and unique group. They also ease social pressures and cost to families.
Vancouver Talmud Torah’s Senior Kindergarten to Grade 7 students are required to wear the school uniform during school hours. Parents are responsible to send the student to school in a uniform which is clean, well-maintained and clearly labelled with the student’s name.
Why Students Wear Uniforms:
Wearing a uniform allows students to focus on more meaningful things than external appearances. We encourage individuality by having the students develop standards of excellence in their spiritual, physical and intellectual lives.
We believe that being a grown-up lasts for a long enough time. Elementary schooling should be relatively free from the pressures of fitting into prescribed modes of dress by external influences such as the media. etc.
