Every person is a unique individual; from their appearance and personality right down to their very DNA, humans are naturally different from one another, yet there are several people who believe that a uniform solution of uniforms in school will work for everyone. The implementation of school uniforms is said to bring about positive changes such as decreases in gang activity, bullying, and costs to parents. This year, we were given the opportunity to have our own uniforms but beforehand we could have a word to say in this, both parents and students being asked about the matter.
The opinions about adding uniforms were divided, there were both pros and cons. All the children had something different to argue about and all of the students asked debated upon the subject. So without further ado, let’s see what all the kids said about uniforms, as an answer to the same question:
WHAT OPINION DO YOU HAVE ABOUT INTRODUCING UNIFORMS IN OUR SCHOOL?
Student 1: “In my opinion, the introduction of the uniform in the school is a very good idea and this is not at all disturbing, but even more its color is one that we can match to any clothes and thus, we can differentiate ourselves from the students of other schools.”
S2: “Being in the eighth grade, I do not agree with the uniforms because in a few months I will finish school and I will no longer wear these uniforms. Another reason I do not agree with these uniforms is that I like to dress differently from the other students.”
S3: “In my opinion, the fact that we have to wear the same clothes every day seems banal and boring, but from the parents’ point of view, the proposal of uniforms is a very good one. They consider that they are exempt from the “burden of buying new clothes”.
S4: “When the headmaster told us that we would have to wear the school uniform, it was a relief for me. Every day, I had to choose other clothes and not to dress myself two days the same, and now the time allocated for choosing clothes I dedicate to other things.”
S5: “I have a very good opinion about uniforms because I think not all children have money for clothes, and in this way, we will not offend each other.”
S6: “In my opinion, the uniforms bring a benefit to the school and I am pro uniforms because we can be distinguished from other schools. In addition, they have a nice color.”
S7: “I agree with the uniforms because not all children can afford expensive clothes, and those who allow themselves no longer have the opportunity to boast their clothes. So some of us will no longer be stigmatized because of the clothes we wear daily.”
S8: “In my opinion, it is very good to wear uniforms because there will be no longer differences between the social classes. Some students cannot afford to buy brand clothes and feel bad comparing themselves to the others.”
S9: “By principle, I do not agree with the uniforms because it seems to me old fashioned and out of place.”
S10: “I find it OK to add uniforms because in this way we’ll have no discussions about company clothes, therefore I completely agree with this idea.”
All in all, wearing uniforms will help build a sense of unity within the school. Instead of everyone as a separate team, everyone will be in the same team. Wearing uniforms will help free students of the stress of what to wear in the morning. Wearing school uniforms will help improve student individuality and improve their self-esteem.
So, here we are, eager to be part of a whole new chapter in our school life!
