School Uniform Shoes - Acceptable Styles

When purchasing shoes for school this year, please make sure they meet our uniform expectations.  Shoes/sandals must be PLAIN black (this includes the sole of the shoe) and must be a sturdy school shoe, not a "fashion" shoe such as a ballet slipper style or jandal.  There are many suitable options available.  All shoes shown on the current "Warehouse" mailer are suitable for school, with the exception of the lace-up pair with brown soles.

The Gardens School is on Facebook

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for up to date school information and news.




New Entrant siblings of students who have moved out of the school zone, will only be considered for enrolment by the Board of Trustees, through a ballot held twice per year (in March and September).  Parents should be mindful of these dates if their child is due to turn 5, to ensure their application is submitted in time.  No other out of zone enrolments will be considered.
