Girl stripped to panties at school | News24


I thought I would post this, as this is how we treat our kids at school, what really annoys me is that this is a poor community and obviously they cant afford more than one summer and one winter uniform.

Johannesburg – A 10-year-old girl who wore trousers instead of a skirt to a Johannesburg school was allegedly made to strip down to her panties, according to a report on Wednesday.

The Cosmo City Primary School No 1 pupil was left wearing panties, a school shirt and jersey for the entire day, The Star reported.

She was allegedly instructed to strip because she wore an "incorrect" uniform to school on Tuesday.

According to her mother, who cannot be named to protect the girl’s identity, the Grade 4 pupil wore her long, grey trousers to school instead of a school skirt because it was wet from the rain the day before.

The mother told the newspaper that her daughter was forced to go home without her trousers because they had been misplaced.

School principal Kgomotso Khumalo denied the allegations. All she had done was make the pupil stand under a carport until 10:00, she said, adding that the girl was one of 70 pupils who had worn the incorrect uniform.

"I told them ‘you are dressed like a circus’. What I usually do is ask them to stand under the carport until break at 10:00 and then they go back to class. I then give them a letter for their parents."

However, Khumalo admitted that she had not given any of the pupils letters on Tuesday.

Gauteng education department spokesperson Charles Phahlane said no pupil should be humiliated at school. He told the newspaper the department would investigate.

I speak my mind, if I offend this is not intentional

  1. Wow, this is crazy, and the truth is, it happens so much in South Africa these days. Some families are so poor, that in rural areas, a pair of school shoes, are the only shoes they have. So with any outfit, for any situation, it is school shoes. Some do not even have school shoes. I remember when I was younger, my family could only afford one pair of school shoes per year. I got into trouble and humiliated because they were scuffed, whereas the other children got new shoes every term. Its hard enough being a poor kid, and having your school mates tease you, but when the school makes it even harder, is unnacceptable.

  2. Suddenly brought back memories of being checked at school to ensure we were wearing the uniform underwear – seriously!! Horrible bloomers in the school colours.. One day I told my Dad (using poetic licence) that the principal, Mr Spicer, had subjected us to an undies check and Dad went to his office the next day and accused himof being a pervert! I never had to go through that again :)
