My name is Daisy, I’m eleven years old and although I am English, I have lived in Germany nearly all my life! I speak German and English and can read and write both too. I enjoy writing and listening to music and am the middle child of three. My mother is an author.
Does your school have a school uniform? Having to wear those scratchy skirts? Tight stockings? With our normal clothes, you can show what kind of person you are! You can send a message out to the world with how you dress, what makeup you were and how you have your hair done!
School uniforms are stopping all this. Not being allowed to choose what to wear seems so unfair! Wouldn’t it be fair if we could choose if we wanted uniforms or not? People are debating on school uniforms and deciding if they should stay!
We want them to be fair we have to be fair too, though! School uniforms make it recognizable which school you go to! Make it obvious how high standards your school is! Negative things about schools without uniforms are for one, you have the getting up in the morning and not knowing what to wear, that leads often to coming late, but that isn’t the actual problem: Kids these days are really brandy! What does brandy mean? You only wear brands and judge people by what they own and not who they are!
This is sadly the case at most schools without school uniforms. If you don’t always wear brands and expensive clothes people often assume that you are poor and have no money and that is a source for being bullied. I for once have been given the choice of wearing brands or not and said no. I own a few brand things but not too many and hardly wear the things that I have, I believe in having your own personal style.
But people don’t just get bullied for the clothes they wear! There’s also the cellphone you own, what size your TV is, how many iPads you have and so on. All that kind of ridiculous things where you wonder, why do you even care? All these things add up to being ‘cool’ or not. Why can’t people just be happy with what they have and not just be sad about what they don’t? Something you’re going to need to know is: you’ll never have everything you want. There will always be some amazing thing that your friend next door has that you don’t! I’d be glad to be proved wrong, though! If you have everything you want and wanted then please let me know. But think about it before you do! I bet there is something you don’t have, material or something else!
