Shoes

Girls : T- bars will be replaced by black leather lace up shoes. The reason for this change is that they are not strong enough as the buckle often breaks leading to students wearing them in manner that could result in injury. Increasingly students are choosing to wear them unbuckled in this dangerous and untidy manner.
