Many schools require closed toe leather shoes in technology workshops for occupational health and safety reasons. But for this schoolgirl, wearing t-bar school shoes into woodwork class was no problem.
Special protective clothing such as an apron is essential for practical subjects including Art, Foods and Technology. A hair restraint must be worn whenever a student is working with or near machinery. Students wearing runners, T-bar school shoes or jewellery will not be admitted to a technology workshop, as they are safety hazards. It is stressed that the technology workshops must satisfy strict industrial requirements in matters concerning occupational health and safety. Students are required to bring safety glasses and ear muffs to technology classes, and may also need their safety glasses in practical science classes.
