Girls at Navigator College in Port Lincoln, South Australia wear t-bar school shoes with their uniform. They are paired with black tights and winter skirt in term 2 and 3, and nude tights and summer dress in terms 1 and 4.
We have noticed a number of Middle School girls wearing their shoes unbuckled every day. I’m afraid if this trend continues to occur we will have no alternative but to cease allowing buckle shoes at school and will only allow shoes with laces as part of our uniform. I realise it may be preferable for students to wear unbuckled shoes at school but it then becomes an Occupational Health and Safety and Welfare issue. Please be vigilant about this at home and reiterate to your daughter that the alternative will be lace up shoes as of 2013.

In Melbourne t-bar shoes are a popular choice for school girls to wear with their school uniform. However that isn’t their only option – some schools aren’t as strict about the types of buckle shoes that can be worn, and there is always the fallback option of boring old black laceups.
How many different types of school shoes can you spot in this class photo?
In just the first row.
Elastic strap ballet flat
Harrison t-bars, two pairs
Double strapped elastic ballet flat
More Harrison t-bars
And two pairs of laceups
And on the other side of the teacher.
Buckle up mary janes
Two more pairs of Harrison t-bars
Elastic strap mary janes
Velcro strap mary janes
And finally, an unbuckled pair of Harrison t-bars
And in the second row is even more shoes to see – with six pairs of unbuckled t-bars among them, it appears teacher missed checking the uniforms of all of the girls.
Q: Some primary school uniform fads are so unexplainable. The double hat is a cracker. What was yours?
A: Ours was wearing those long singlets from supre or jay jays that had the lace on the bottom. The lace hung down over your school skirt. We also had bucket hats but everyone wore them with the front flipped up. And a random one in high school was everyone wore those t bar buckle up school shoes but they left them unbuckled and even stood on the back of the heels so they looked like slippers.
A: Shoes like this. Schools in Australia have uniforms, including black, enclosed shoes. For a while among the girls at my school it was popular to get shoes in this style but never actually buckle them up. Just…leave them undone.
This guy doesn’t like it when schoolgirls play with their shoes under the desk in class.
