Uniforms

 

    I.H.M.S. Uniform Shop: 135 McGregor Avenue   

 

IHM School uniforms reduce an over emphasis on fashion fads and ensure the simple attractiveness of the student body. Students are to wear the official school apparel pieces purchased through the IHMS Uniform Shop. 

The Uniform Shop offers IHMS families both in-person shopping at the Uniform Shop or online purchasing.

For online orders, please note:
– all online orders are to be picked up from the IHMS Office, 650 Flora Avenue (not the Uniform Shop);
– there is an $3.00 processing fee for all online orders.

The IHMS Uniform Shop will also continue to offer in-person shopping at the Uniform Shop. To regulate social distancing protocols, the in-person shopping will be by appointment. An online sign-up will be sent to families to book a time slot. When visiting the Uniform Shop families are requested to:
– have one parent present, and their child(ren);
– please be respectful of the time slot durations.

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 Mabel’s Labels. See www.mabelslabels.com. Permanent felt markers can also be used to label a tag.

The IHMS Uniform Shop is located at 135 McGregor Street. Proceed through the front doors and follow the signage to the basement level. Shop hours are listed above, and will also be indicated on the monthly newsletters, or can be obtained by calling the School Office at 204-582-5698.

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.
