Please label each item of your child’s school uniform items. Many children wear the same size clothing and during the grade 1 to 8 Phys. Ed. classes, when the students change into gym attire, uniforms get exchanged in the change rooms. To avoid losing your child’s uniform, please label it. Iron on labels can be ordered through Regal or Mabel’s Labels. See www.mabelslabels.com. Permanent felt markers can also be used to label a tag.

When purchasing your school uniform order, please keep in mind:

  • All IHMS Uniforms must be purchased through the IHMS Uniform Shop.
  • There are both new and used uniforms for sale.
  • The uniform should be tried on before being purchased.
  • Uniforms are generic sizing, alterations are the parent’s responsibility.
  • The golf shirts are 100% cotton so allow for some shrinkage.
  • New uniform items can only be returned exchanged if they have not been hemmed or cut.
  • Returns and exchanges must be done on the next Uniform Shop open day.
  • Used uniforms are final sale (no exchanges / returns).
  • Cheques are made out to the IHMS Uniform and can be post dated until the end of the month.

Keep in mind the wear and tear that your child will put on the uniform (pants especially). Ensure that your child has more than one shirt so that you will have ample time for laundering. It is school policy, as stated in the IHMS Handbook, that the uniform be clean and tidy at all times.
