ABOVE & BEYOND

At West Island College, we believe that a uniform encourages students to recognize each other for whom they are and not whom they appear to be. The policy also allows the community at large to recognize our students as a group of young people who share a common ideal and goal: “the pursuit of personal excellence”.

All students are expected to arrive and depart from school wearing the school uniform. Students will wear the uniform, at all times, while in school.
