Important Notes:

  • All purchases can be made online at the listed suppliers, which include sizing charts and tables. Please see below (Uniform Suppliers) for more information.

Please visit the supplier websites at a later time if you are unable to order uniforms today. They are working to resolve these shortages as soon as possible.
  • Any donations of uniform items with the current logo, especially navy polos, would be greatly appreciated. These can be donated to the gently used store ASAP and funds raised will go toward our benevolent fund that supports families within our school.
  • Parents may source a navy polo from the community, but it will not be acceptable once Canuck Volleyball can replenish their stock.
  • Please ensure that all clothing and uniform pieces for your children are labelled with their first and last names, so that they may be claimed at the Lost and Found (Main Office) when lost, and please remind your children to keep track of their belongings while at school.
