Uniforms serve many purposes. At FFCA, our school uniforms help students arrive at school with an attitude conducive to learning and work. Secondly, our uniforms help to create a sense of culture and belonging. When our students are in uniform outside the school, they represent FFCA and everything that FFCA stands for. Lastly, uniforms help eliminate socioeconomic differences and the tendency toward competition between students in the areas of dress and appearance. FFCA is a uniform school. All students arrive at school dressed in either their full gala uniform or their daily wear uniform as directed/required. The only exceptions will occur on predetermined casual days.
View the PDF document of the FFCA Uniform Policy and Requirements at Policy 14 - Uniforms. With the passing of this uniform policy, the new uniform expectations are officially in place. However, current uniform clothing items that do not meet the new policy expectations will be permitted to be worn until the 2019-2020 school year as we transition to the new standards with a new supplier. If you have questions concerning the new uniform requirements, please read the Frequently Asked Questions below which should address your questions or concerns.
FFCA Uniform FAQs
Where can I find a list of the uniform items my child will need for the upcoming school year?
Click on the link to Policy 14 - Uniforms which clearly outlines the uniform requirements.
Where do I purchase my uniforms from?
The contact information for our school uniform supplier is:
Philips Park, Building A, Unit A9E

Are we allowed to continue to wear items from our previous suppliers, including burgundy knits, past the 2018-2019 school year?
It depends. As long as they meet the new policy's colour and style requirements, as outlined in Policy 14 - Uniforms, uniform pieces from our previous suppliers (Halpern's & Wear It) are still okay to be worn in future years. This includes the older kilts, tunics, and burgundy knits even though their shading may be different than the new items.
