The school day begins promptly each day at 8:30 am and students are required to be at school by 8:20 am so they have adequate time to prepare for class.

The day ends at 3:30 pm on Monday-Thursday and at 3:00 pm on Fridays.
At Holy Name of Mary College School, the school uniform is worn as a symbol of school pride and community respect. Top Marks (based in Montreal), an extremely reputable Canadian manufacturer of school uniforms, is our exclusive school uniform provider. All pieces of the school uniform (with the exception of the athletic wear and the polo shirt) can only be purchased through Top Marks.
More information will be available from Top Marks prior to Welcome Day. Details regarding the school uniform policy are included in the Family Handbook.
The Textbook list for 2023-24 will be shared here when finalised. All students can order their textbooks through the school supported supplier, Canadian School Book Exchange (CSBE).
Families are also welcome to source the prescribed textbooks or any associated e-book or digital format available from other providers but must ensure the ISBN numbers are correct. Used books can be purchased from current students using our online HNMCS Used (Face)Book Store.
A key part of our programme is the integration of technology to supplement curriculum. Encouraging the use of technology in everyday activities develops creativity, challenges students to seek new forms of learning and collaboration, and builds digital citizenship. HNMCS is a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) school and requires that all students come prepared with a device each and every day. More information is in our Family Handbook.Technology at HNMCS
The HNMCS Student Services department provides resources to students to ensure that the needs of the whole girl are being addressed. The focus of this department is helping students take ownership of their learning through various in school supports. Throughout the year, students will meet with their various support personnel, but recommendations can also be made by teachers for these services or through students reaching out directly.
The Co-Curricular programme is integrated in the school on a four days per week rotation schedule. The life skills developed in these activities promote relationship building and teamwork, and enhance each student’s understanding of her abilities and responsibilities as part of the school community and the broader social community.
The Co-curricular Programme at HNMCS runs 3 cycles throughout the year and includes a wide range of clubs, sports and activities. During the first weeks of school, students will have the opportunity to sign up for the fall session of the co-curricular programme.
All athletic wear and the HNMCS polo shirt can be purchased exclusively through our school store, Blue Boutique, located on the main floor of the school building. Blue Boutique also carries a selection of optional spirit wear items and other school related products.
On Welcome Day Blue Boutique will be open from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm for athletic wear purchases, etc.
