I agree, it's a great idea.

I was never traumatised by the use of the uniform and overall I can see how it’d have much more positive attributes than the negativity that could surround just wearing normal clothes. Makes kids look smarter when you pass them on the way to schools too. Presents a nice image about the schools.

Uniforms are a great idea, the rich kids don't tease the poor kids, and the pooor parents are richer cause their not pressured as much to buy the latest for our little fashion victoms.

My son who's in 3rd grade has a uniform. He had a uniform when he was attending the nursery also. But my daughter who's going to nursery now, does not have a uniform. I personally think while it is ok to have a uniform for schoold children, nursery children should be able to wear whatever. Cos in a school it is difficult to control specially with girls' fashions. But in a nursery, children should be free and should be like butterflies.

Yes it foes, and they should continue wearing it because it gets them ready for when they work and have to wear a uniform

My son attends VIII Standard and they have two different sets of uniform (2 sets x 2 set). The first set is main uniform which they have to wear on Mon-Tue, Thrus-Fri. The second set they have to wear on Wednesday, saturday. The uniforms have to be purchased through a store linked to the school. Shoes have to purchased from a store linked to the school.

My daughter's school doesn't have uniforms and so far it has been fine for us. She is only 6 and this is just her second year there (she is in 1st grade). I'm not sure what we will do when she is older and more fashion conscience, not to mention I will have three other kids in school then, too. I went to Catholic school growing up so I wore a uniform every day from 1st grade thru 12th grade and I enjoyed. The uniforms weren't always the most flattering or comfortable, but I liked not having to worry if I was dressed in the latest fashion (which I wasn't) or what I was going to wear each day.

I live in Tasmania, Australia. At the school my children attend, there is a school uniform, and I LOVE IT. When we have school holidays, they attend something called "Vacation Care" as I work through the week, and need them to be looked after. This is a wonderful thing - with one exception. I need to find clothes for them to wear. We do not have a lot of money, hence the choice of clothes is not very large. It is bad enough when they have 2 weeks of holidays, but even worse over the summer holidays. There are 6 or so weeks of summer holidays, so I need to find clothes to cover 6 weeks of holidays, without it being too obvious that they are wearing the same ones over and over again. I don't want them to wear regular clothes - keep the school uniform - I need them to be in school uniform.
