You don't like skirts? He doesn't like long trousers

Schoolboy in a skirt:

Pupil protests at rule forcing boys to wear trousers during hot weather

Read and answer these questions if you can.
Why is he wearing a skirt?
What are the rules about uniform at his school?
What is the school's policy about make-up?


  1. -Because he is protesting against discrimination in his school so it doesn't let them use shorts in hot weather.
    -The boys have to wear long black trousers and the girls skirts to the knee.
    -Make-up can only take if it is discreet, but the teachers have the power to say students to remove the make-up and nail polish.

  2. Well done Andrea,
    That's exactly right. You are the first person to answer correctly, so you get the points!
