Stella Maris uniform[edit]

The school uniform for the female students are patterned after sailors' costumes. The high school uniform has a white long-sleeved blouse, with the blue marine collar and sailor's necktie. A series of buttons connects to the skirt. The primary school uniform is similar to the high school uniform except for the long sleeves, cravat and the shorter dress. For the grade 7 (starting on the year 2012) they have the same design but they have longer sleeves than grade school (3/4) grade 7 also wears gala.
