German exchange students at Korowa Anglican Girls’ School

Germany is another country without school uniforms. But when their students head overseas on exchange programs, they have to dress in the uniforms of their host schools. Here is a class of Germany exchange students at Korowa Anglican Girls’ School.

All are wearing summer dress and white socks. Their black shoes are a mix of ballet flats and mary janes.

Spot the odd girl out

Two trios of schoolgirls. All attend Monivae College, Hamilton. In each trio there is an odd one out. Can you spot her?

Black lace-up leather school shoes, t-bar sandals may be worn but are not recommended for winter wear. Platform shoes, slip-on shoes or black sneakers are not acceptable

But it doesn’t mean a MacRob girl can’t try on her new platform heels at school.
