  School uniform's not that bad
Updated 27 April 2002, 09.03

Siobhan now understands why wearing uniform to school isn't such a bad idea.

"I used to hate wearing uniform, I thought there was no point in wearing it.


That was until non-uniform day.

We always look forward to non-uniform day but I didn't realise how horrible people can be.

Fashion day

I wore my jeans, a top and a jacket - what I was comfortable in - but some people thought it was a fashion day.

As soon as we got into class it was "I don't like what he's wearing" or "that top is disgusting!".

Don't say daft

They even started on people not in our year, telling them they looked daft or saying that their trainers were disgusting.

I couldn't help wishing that someone had said it back to them so they knew how it felt to be called daft.

I now understand one of the reasons for wearing uniform - so no-one can get picked on because of what they are wearing."

Siobhan, 13, Doncaster
