Here are the Top 5 Reasons We Celebrate Wearing Uniforms at One School:
Sense of Belonging
Relieves Peer Pressure
Perspective from a scholar...
"Wearing a uniform is a badge of pride, creates an identity for a school and is an important part of being a school scholar...
A school uniform teaches students to dress smartly and take pride in their appearance...
Perhaps most importantly, a uniform means students don't have to worry about peer pressure when it comes to their clothes. When everyone is dressed the same, worrying about what you look like isn't so important. There is no competition about being dressed in the latest trend, which would put a great deal of financial pressure on students and parents. Potential bullies have one less target for their insults; it's hard to make fun of what someone is wearing when you're dressed exactly the same...
My uniform might not be what I would wear in my own time, but it gives me a sense of belonging, takes away the pressure of what to wear and deters the bullies. School uniform isn't fashionable, but that's exactly why I think it should be here to stay."
Clothing must be clean, neat and in good repair.
