WHY WEAR A UNIFORM?

It’s there for good reasons. First of all, I like uniforms because everyone has the same. Then, it stops us worrying about what to wear each day. Besides, when we go on a school trip, we all look the same and so can’t get lost. Finally, it develops school spirit.

What’s the point of school uniform?

As a parent, I don’t have to shop for new expensive clothes for my children. It saves my family time and money, and I know for sure my daughters won’t show off to other kids. Everyone is equal: all children dress the same, whether rich or poor. Interestingly, when there is no debate about what a child is allowed to wear to school, then that makes mornings easier for parents and for kids.

There are several reasons for it. A school uniform is an important part of being a school student. Dressing alike helps schoolchildren focus on schoolwork and understand what really counts is what kind of people they are. Besides, wearing a school uniform gives a sense of pride and discipline. All in all, it creates a more serious atmosphere in the classroom.
