Uniforms and Dress Code

At the Halifax Grammar School, our students are welcome to dress casually on most days of the year, while respecting a dress code that requires them to wear clothing appropriate to the occasion, and to the institution. Although uniforms are not worn every day, there is an official School Dress for specified formal occasions such as guest speakers, special events, assemblies, and when representing Grammar on campus or in the community.

Hours of Operation


IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT THE SHOP SALE: 

Please use the main Tower Road entrance (not the new school entrance) to access the Uniform Shop sale.  

There is no parking on the school grounds due to the ongoing construction.

Access to the new school wing is not available ~ it is still an active construction site. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

The Uniform Shop’s annual
'Back to School' event will take place from August 20-23.  The Shop clothing will be set-up for sale in classroom # 203 at the TRC on the following days:

  • Monday, August 20 - 8:00am - 4:00pm
  • Tuesday, August 21 - 8:00am - 4:00pm
  • Wednesday, August 22 - 10:00am - 6:00pm
  • Thursday, August 23 - 10:00am - 6:00pm

As you will notice, we have scheduled this event a week earlier than in past years.  This is due to the construction and finishing of our new school and to ensure that there is plenty of time for all faculty and staff to get settled into their new classrooms and offices before classes begin on September 6th

After the shop sale, Individual morning appointments will be available and may be requested by contacting me at thehgsshop@hgs.ns.ca.  Unfortunately, I may not be able to accommodate all requests so please make every effort to attend the Shop Sale event. Appointments typically last 20-30 minutes per student.
 
We are currently unable to offer individual appointments prior to the shop sale.
