Wardrobe & Uniforms

The Hamilton District Christian High School dress code has been constructed in order to help the school meet its mission. A student dress code gives the student an immediate sense of belonging while enhancing the image of the school in the community. The goal of the Hamilton District Christian High wardrobe is to present ourselves both in school and out in the community as ambassadors of HDCH. As such, we expect our students to look neat, yet comfortable.

The dress code policy is in effect while at school, including lunch and spares. Students observe the dress code for all school days and school-related activities. Special dress days, such as spirit days and dress down days, take place throughout the year.

Hamilton District Christian High has a contract with McCarthy Uniforms. For more information about locations, options, pricing and ordering, please contact them directly at www.mccarthyuniforms.ca
