  Children say no to school uniform
Updated 01 February 2002, 17.15
No uniform a big hit for children
It's the big thumbs down to wearing uniforms at school, according to a Newsround survey.

"I don't like wearing my uniform because it's not the latest fashion," says 10-year-old Anthony, and it would seem most of you agree.


It was no surprise then to find delighted children across the UK participating in the Unicef non-uniform day.

Children paid a small fee to wear 'normal' clothes to school - the money raised will go towards helping children in countries such as Brazil and Bangladesh.

4,000 schools joined in the project.

Fun day

"I think this is a brilliant idea and all for a good cause" says Beatrice, 10, from London. "It's a fun day for us but it's not fun for the children we have been learning about," says 10-year-old Jay.

At a school in Scotland they decided to do a coin mile as well as non-uniform day. Pupils collect spare change, bring it to school and stick them down on the coin mile.

"We want to raise more money for Unicef this year than we did last year," say Ashleigh and Sarah, both aged 11.
