I go to a Catholic all girls school with 400 students. It is so lame. Everybody knows everybodys business, and you wouldn't believe the amount of bitchyness that goes on at schools like mine. Because it's so small, our subject choices are really bad and the uniform is ridiculously strict. You can't wear headbands unless they are red or blue (because they go with the uniform) and the teachers actually measure how long and short summer dresses and winter kilts are. Hair tied up (with a black tie) top button done up, tie down properly, No make up, one stud in each ear. If your shoes aren't polished perfectly, or you're wearing nail polish, you have to go down to the office and sort yourself out. If you have on any jewellery you shouldn't, they confiscate it for the whole semester. The annual "Harry Potter Week" was cancelled by the new principal because she doesn't believe in witchcraft. Come on. I could go on, but I'll finish my rant here :]
I'm coming to live in the U.S next year, and I can't wait to go to a public school. No uniform. Aaaah.
we have 5 periods a day--each is one hour long
and we have formtime/assembly after first period
theyre pretty strict on uniform this year (we wear shirts, ties, skirts)
but theyre pretty relaxed on badges on our jerseys and bags and stuff and ipods and cellphones
umm in seventh form (last year of high school) we dont have to wear uniform
Sorry, do you mind if I ask where in NZ you are? And you're right, Edward does live in New Zealand.
