Dress Code

Like all schools in Singapore, SAS has a dress code and students are to remain in school uniform for the entire school day.

The SAS student uniform consists of a white polo shirt with an embroidered logo and navy bottoms, also with an embroidered logo. Students require both regular uniforms and PE uniforms. Alternate dress days occur twice each month and are noted on the school calendar.

A white or blue Singapore sweatshirt (purchased at the Booster Club Booth) or a solid navy blue or white sweater or sweatshirt (with no commerical logos, stripes, or designs) may be worn over an SAS uniform shirt.

A solid white undershirt or white SAS t-shirt may be worn under the official SAS uniform polo shirt.

Uniforms can be purchased on campus at the PTA office or the Booster Booth, or through their online stores.

Uniform pants for boys and girls can be ordered through Lands End at https://www.landsend.com/pp/px/schoolaccount.

Alternate Dress Days

  • Hair, shoes, and accessories must align with the regular dress day requirements.
  • Knee length shorts, knee length skirts and dresses, or long pants are permitted.
  • Jeans are acceptable as long as they are clean and in good repair (no holes or fraying).
  • Clothing should send a positive message. Clothing which depicts drugs, alcohol, profanity, or sexual innuendo is prohibited.
  • Tank tops, spaghetti straps, strapless, or midriff tops are not allowed.
  • Shoulders must be covered.

Special Dress/Holiday Dress/Game and Performance Attire

  • Jerseys, club, and performance recognition shirts may be worn in the place of the white SAS uniform polo shirt on special occasions as approved by the administration.
  • Students must wear uniform bottoms with a top that aligns with the school dress code and the spirit/holiday dress requirements.
  • Costumes should align with the school dress code and the spirit/holiday dress requirements.
  • Spirit/holiday dress days are not “alternate dress days.” Students are expected to be in uniform if they choose not to participate fully with the theme of the day.
