Uniforms

The official dress code of Monsignor Paul Dwyer Catholic High School is a result of discussion with faculty, students, parent council and administration. Our school uniform is compulsory. All students are to wear the uniform during the school day. The school colours are navy and gold.

During the 2020/2021 school year, headwear will be under review across all DCDSB secondary schools pending consultation with community partners and stakeholders. All Dress Code infractions will be addressed with discretion and respect.
