Brighton Secondary College principal Julie Podbury has had enough and wants to stop girls wearing skirts that leave little to the imagination.
The move has won support from other principals and family groups. Ms Podbury used last month’s school newsletter to announce her “major crackdown” on girls showing too much leg.
“Many of our female students must have grown a lot lately as the skirts suddenly seem VERY short,” she wrote. “Can we please ensure the skirts are a decent length.”
Nail polish, heavy make-up, unbuckled T-bar shoes, undone ties, shirts hanging loose and socks over stockings are also on the hit list.
But students at the school are refusing to follow the rules.
