School Uniform

Following the launch of Cedar’s new logo, we are pleased to share details of the new uniform which will be available for the 2016-17 school year. The new uniforms not only feature the new logo, but also feature contemporary materials and design options that add freshness while continuing to offer the traditional Cedar look. In coming to a decision, the school sourced a variety of samples from different suppliers and sought feedback from staff, parents and students before seeking endorsement from the Board of Trustees. We hope you’ll agree, Cedar students stand to look pretty sharp next year! (Note: Current uniforms featuring the old logo will continue to be acceptable throughout the 2016-2017 school year.)

School Uniform Policy In Full

As part of the Cedar International School identity, all students are required to wear a school uniform as clarified below. Failure to comply with the uniform policy and dress code is considered a disciplinary infraction and will result in consequences according to the disciplinary code.

Our preferred supplier is Land’s End. Should you choose to use another supplier please ensure that the colour and style are equivalent. Cedar’s Lands End Preferred School No’ is 900041328. Visit www.landsend.com

Please label uniform items with your child’s name.

Please note that hats must be worn by students from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 5 when in the sun, for long-term safety reasons. Hats should be removed when inside the building, even on Free Dress Days.

P.E. Uniform

Students who do not wear an appropriate PE uniform will not be permitted to participate in class.

All students will wear a sporty lime, white and grey “dry-fit” shirt, which will have the Cedar logo centred on the upper back. The shirts come in both male and female cuts. Students in Grades 5-12 will also wear grey athletic shorts branded with the Cedar logo. These will be available directly from the school. (Note: Students younger than Grade 5 can also wear the shorts, but the primary PE teacher does not require them to change shorts for PE due to the time it takes younger children to do so!)

The last Friday of the month is Free Dress Day, providing student attire follows the Grade 12 Student Dress Code. Closed-toe shoes only.

REQUIRED ITEMS

School Polo: Primary students wear green. Secondary students have a choice of white or green. As there is a wide variety of opinion on material preference, shirts will be available in both current forms (soft and knit) from Lands End and in a modern “dry-fit” fabric directly from the school. The shirts will continue to be worn with khaki shorts, trousers, or skirts. Polo shirts will also be available from J&C Trading in Road Town.

Students in Grades 5-12 will also wear grey athletic shorts branded with the Cedar logo. These will be available directly from the school.

OPTIONAL ITEMS

Outer Garment: Students can choose any grey outer garment from Lands End, so long as it is branded with the Cedar logo. The hoodie is pictured above, but cardigans, fleeces, and jumpers are also available.

Formal Option: A formal option will also be available (but not required) for secondary students. This can be either a branded dress shirt without a tie, or a plain white dress shirt with a branded Cedar tie. These may be worn on designated days and may be required when representing Cedar at certain community events.
