Re tay­lah and the ear­ring saga. i would think that ear­rings would at­tract more at­ten­tion to her ears. rules are rules. you agreed to them when you en­rolled in the school not wear­ing her hair up may be an op­tion ann tsv To tay­lah. Turn your tv on sweet­heart. Take a good look at the dis­as­ters and loss of life be­ing shown. Then take your ear­rings out, stop your stupid pout­ing, and go to school. If that is as bad as your life gets then you are go­ing to have a charmed life. Get some per­spec­tive in your life! Pretty sure the ear­ring rule is in most if not all schools. And was there long be­fore you turned up! Bid, mount louisa. Matt 4810. It’s your type of, I know my rights an­ar­chy, that makes en­cour­ag­ing teenagers to be a re­spect­ing part of so­ci­ety so much harder than it needs to be for par­ents and teach­ers alike. We all have rights. Re­mem­ber though, we all have re­spon­si­bil­i­ties as well, that is far more im­por­tant for a civilised so­ci­ety. RD 4818 Rules are rules no mat­ter what . Rules keep us all safe and ear­rings are dan­ger­ous ac­ces­sories. Schools have rules to pro­tect stu­dents.

Its just so silly that is even mak­ing the news! Her mother needs to pull her head in! Teach­ing her child to try to cover up a part of their body they do not like. Good on the school for their ac­tions. Stick with the rules! T 4810 Ms Wil­liams. U need to learn that teach­ers are not stu­dents and have ev­ery right as adults to wear more than one pair of earn­ings. Teach­ers have been to school and fol­lowed the rules, your daugh­ter should do the same. Daz kir­wan Pim­lico SHS is a great school that has a uni­form pol­icy that ap­plies to all stu­dents. If you don’t agree with the pol­icy, then per­haps you need to go to an­other school. Par­ents send their kids to Pim­lico be­cause it does en­force it’s rules. Deb 4814 Great work Bully!
