Playing the schoolgirl in Dr Martens boots

Rebel against t-bar strap shoes and Mary Janes by pulling on a pair of Dr Martens boots!

This is me badly channeling a sort of schoolgirl look because after just a year I have forgotten what it feels like to be kept in the iron clutches of school routine.

I certainly never wore Dr Martens to school but with black lace ups being technically on the shoe list I could have gotten away with them for at least my senior year and decorated them with stickers but it appears that idea is now two years too late. But it’s not too late for you!

Rebel against t-bar strap shoes and Mary Janes that everyone else has and don’t forget what our punk forefathers fought for!

Crazy sock day at Trinity Catholic College

Girls at Trinity Catholic College in Sydney normally rear navy tights with their winter uniform and lace up school shoes. But for Crazy Sock Day they pulled pair of colourful knee socks over the top, to raise money for the less fortunate.

When you do year 12 out our secondary college and the year draws to an end the students have what they call a muck up week.

Tuesday & Thursday is for dressing up in a costume that starts with a letter from one of your initials.

Wednesday you transform your uniform into what ever you like and then get your fellow peers to graffiti it. Friday is to PARTY and graduation.

We started with this…..

Using only theses materials which we had purchased earlier…..

And ended up with a skirt and top.

The back of the skirt it has a big bow….

Schoolgirls in high heels

Schoolgirls at a prestigious Victorian secondary college have been told to bring high heels to class for a lesson on walking and deportment.

Girton Grammar schoolgirls slam modern etiquette lesson with advice on walking in high heels

Schoolgirls at a prestigious Victorian college have been told to bring high heels to class for a lesson on walking and deportment.

Girton Grammar hired a consultant to deliver a modern etiquette lesson to VCE students as part of a weekly workshop to prepare them for life after school.

Girls were to be taught “deportment and presentation skills, including how to manage wearing high heels” in a ­female-only session.

But the students dug in their heels over the “demeaning and sexist” request, prompting the school to give it the boot.

Concerned students, who wished to remain anonymous, slammed the school for the outdated lesson.

“This is not 1950, this is 2017,” they said in a letter to the Herald Sun.

“On the one hand, we are being expected to excel at STEM subjects alongside the boys.

“On the other, we are being asked to bring in high heels so that we can learn to work in them.

“It is demeaning and sexist.”

Collective Shout’s Melinda Tankard Reist said the high-heel lesson sent the wrong message.

“It plays into gender stereotypes in the workforce that women are decorative objects tottering around on high heels,” she said.

“Not all women feel comfortable ­wearing high heels, nor should they have to.”

The elite Bendigo school charges up to $13,800 a year.

Headmaster Matthew Maruff said the modern etiquette workshop gave students expert information on “self-conduct in social and work environments”.

He said the advice on walking in high heels was to be dished out after the workshop, not as part of the lesson itself.

“At all times, we encourage our students to speak out respectfully on any issue that concerns them,” he said.

“In this instance, we were very glad that two students let us know that they felt uncomfortable being asked to bring high heels to school as part of the modern etiquette session. Several students did elect to seek advice related to wearing high heels after the session and the school was happy to support these students in that choice.”

The consultant, believed to be the mother of a student who graduated last year, did not return calls for comment.
