why a new improved dress code
Why a New & Improved Dress Code?

All members of the Mt Abe school community are expected to dress in a way that promotes a healthy learning environment and that shows respect for themselves and others in the school. The Mt Abe expectations for appropriate attire ("dress code") have been developed in accordance with our school's mission statement:

"to create and maintain a respectful environment..." and

"...all participate as responsible citizens".

That would mean that clothing choices worn in the school environment will be similar to what would be appropriate and responsible in a business/workplace setting and demonstrate respect for ourselves and everyone else at school.
