UNIFORM

VES has a school uniform which creates a feeling of belonging and togetherness as a community. It also makes life simple and cheaper for parents. In school, it helps to avoid distractions and reduce the temptation to judge one another on appearance or through the brands worn. All uniform components are available for purchase at school.
