The Ministry of Education has said that a consultation opens today until next Friday on school uniform.
The Ministry said in a statement that in this first phase students in middle and secondary schools will be able to give their opinion as to whether they prefer their current uniforms or change to tracksuits.
Primary school students will also take part in the consultation through organised focus groups.
One all the information from the consultation has been collected, it will then be the turn of the children’s parents and educators in state schools, for their opinion, said the Ministry.
It concluded by saying that, “if the decision is just a tracksuit as the only uniform, the Ministry considers that there should be a phasing-in of this new uniform, so that there in no undue financial burdens on parents.”
