Ordering Your Uniform

Our official school uniform supplier is RJ McCarthy School Uniforms.  Parents can place uniform orders online, over the phone or by fax with the supplier.  Orders are shipped directly to your home address.  Methods of payment accepted are Visa, MasterCard, debit and personal cheques.  Visit www.rjmccarthy.com or contact a Customer Service Representative at 1-800-668-8261 to place your order throughout the year.

Used Uniform Swaps

Take advantage of the uniform swap events that occur throughout the year.  Uniform swaps allow parents to trade outgrown uniform pieces in exchange for other pieces.  Generally, a swap takes place during the Welcome Back BBQ at the end of August, as well as other scheduled times through the year.

There has been some confusion in the past as to how the swap works. The swap is “leave one take one” so if you have an embroidered piece of clothing you may swap it for another embroidered item; pants/skorts for pants/skorts etc.  To clarify:

  • All shirts must have the St Albert Cogito label
  • All clothing must be in good condition (no holes, tears, cuts, stains etc.)
