The WES dress code encourages neatness, a sense of appropriate attire, and school pride. Nursery – Kindergarten students have a more relaxed dress code. Students in Grades 1-8 have a well-defined dress code.
In Grades 1-8 there are two types of uniform, “dress uniform” and “ daily wear.” Students in Grades 2-8 also have PE uniforms.
- “Dress uniform” is worn on special occasions such as all-school chapels, school picture day, school performances, and special field trips. When dress uniform is not required, students may dress in accordance with “options for daily wear.”
- “Daily wear” is less formal and worn on most school days. The items listed as dress uniform are also options for daily wear.
