Suspended! Unhappy with their uniforms, principal of the Graydon Sealy Secondary School, Matthew Farley, this week suspended over 200 students.

The action drew the ire of their parents, many of whom converged on the school’s compound yesterday seeking immediate redress.

Here, an upset Lois Watson points at her granddaughter’s uniform, which she contends is the right length, as other suspended students and their guardians look on.

The child that is pointed at has her belt under her breast and the uniform stretched, however, when she puts on the belt on the waist the uniform Will be short. Mr. Farley I applaud you. Keep up the good work.

Did he wanted them to wear mini skirts, I always felt girls at mix schools with boys should have always be allow to wear knee length dresses or or even a tip below. What can be so wrong with that; boys will always be boys when girls not having the right dress length.

I doubt very much that those were the lengths presented at the time that these kids were sent home.

I'm all for students upholding the rules of the school and dressing like students and not like school men and women, but if this picture is anything to go by, should these skirts get any longer, the Garrison Secondary certainly won't be needing to spend any money on brooms and mops this year. These girls all look quite respectable to me and I believe of greater importance is the folly of having students out of the learning environment and unsupervised at home when they should be at school learning.

I agree with you @ Cheryl Harewood, especially since they have to ability to travel with an extra union and change in the bus terminal or any other accomodating place. Of course there is also the rolled waist and press on tape methods the 'smart alecks' can use.
