Let's keep uniforms

I am writing in response to the article 'Uniform rule is wearing thin' (Young Post, March 3). I don't agree that students should not wear school uniforms.

Uniforms represent unity within a group. If casual wear is allowed at school, every student will wear something different. They wouldn't look like they belonged to one group.

Many advantages to wearing uniforms

Some teenagers don't like to wear uniforms. But most of my fellow students are very excited about Uniform Day. We can have fun wandering around the campus and taking photos with friends. We enjoy wearing our uniform.

I think there are many benefits to wearing a uniform.

Uniforms are about vital factors: school spirit and discipline

With the new school year now well under way, let us consider the utility of requiring pupils to wear a school uniform, reviewing what the objectives are and to what extent, if any, those objectives are being met.

All good schools are the same; their pupils are smartly and appropriately turned out, displaying pride in their school uniform as well as self-respect.

Have Your Say

Respect others for who they are

Everyone wants to be respected. My elder sister told me that the older people get, the more respect they want.

They study hard to get a degree, find a high-ranking job, work to get more money, buy a flat, get a platinum credit card, wear diamonds and buy brand-name products to gain respect.

From tame tunics to tank tops: there's no uniformity

As school bells ring out across the city every afternoon, a concoction of school uniforms spills on to the streets. Boys in knee-high white socks, ties and blazers jostle for space on the city's trains beside students in low-slung jeans, T-shirts and trendy sneakers.
