Long story shorts

Apr. 16, 2019 | The BCS uniform has a new addition!

It's been just under a year since we announced the addition of pants as a uniform option for girls at BCS. This week, we're announcing a new addition to our weekday ensembles: shorts! The project has been in the works since last year when an unseasonably warm spring inspired our Student Life Committee to give boys at BCS a clothing option other than pants. The initiative continued into this year as students worked with suppliers to determine the colour, cut, and style of the shorts for both girls and boys. The committee received their first samples on Friday and have been testing them out this week. "I'm really happy with how these turned out," exclaimed Timothy-Paul, who was part of the group that initially proposed the idea. The next step will be to collect comments from the larger student body to make these pants the best they can be. Among the feedback received so far, the final design of the shorts will be shorter than the samples (not rolled, as in the photo), and will use a lighter material. A few other colours are being considered as well.

Congrats to the Student Life Committee for their hard work bringing this project to completion!
