No skirts at school

"A head teacher has banned skirts from his school, citing "frequent" complaints that they are "far too revealing".

In an email to parents at St Martin's School in Caerphilly, Lee Jarvis said from September both pupils and staff must wear tailored trousers or shorts.

....members of the public have frequently contacted the school to complain about what they regard as highly inappropriate and far too revealing attire for the workplace."

Workplace?

And if it's the girls' legs, won't shorts be just as "revealing" ?

To be fair, I live near a high school and some of the girls barely have their arses covered.

I'm sure they leave home with them a respectable length but then hitch them up.

Re: No skirts at school

Another idiot.

He might have had a point if the girls were complaining about having to wear skirts, but clearly they were not.

Our local comp allows either, but almost all [the girls] choose to wear skirts.

Re: No skirts at school

If they're not allowed skirts I can see skimpy hot pants being worn.

Re: No skirts at school

A similar incident happened at a secondary school in Dundee, the lad involved was wearing shorts, he was called to the headmaster's room and told this was not the school policy on uniforms, as the policy was for trousers or skirts, so he borrowed his sister's skirt and wore that, this was a get it right up you to the headmaster..

The skirt also being male wear cannot be denied by any Scotsman. The lad had it right!
