Daughters having to wear school tights in warm weather

In the recent hot weather I really felt for my 2 daughters who attend a school with a very strict inflexible school uniform policy.Black tights (60-70 denier!) must be worn throughout the school year regardless of how hot it is.Whilst the girls can remove their blazers if it is very warm, there is no permission to wear ankle socks and go bare legged.Tights must be worn.I feel it is unreasonable but dont want to challenge the school.

Isn't that unhealthy for a start?

piscesmoon Sat 06-Jun-09 16:17:50

Is this a private school?

purepurple Sat 06-Jun-09 16:22:45

sweaty betty!
what's wrong with socks ffs?

LovelyTinOfSpam Sat 06-Jun-09 16:23:24

They'll all get thrush!

Is it a very religious school?

Is the education worth the torture?

The local Catholic school does this although a few girls rebel and wear ankle socks. I do pity the girls there.

are you sure??

have you ever asked if they maybe just missed it out on the uniform letter??

Oh, is the tights troll back?

He my thoughts exactly AA.

What on earth does he/she get out of this?

purepurple Sat 06-Jun-09 16:33:05

what do you mean?

TheDevilWearsPenneys Sat 06-Jun-09 16:34:02

Every couple of months some freak posts about their daughters and tights, or asks questions about wearing tights with or without knickers. Freak.

Has anyone searched the posters history? <lazy>

AnarchyAunt Sat 06-Jun-09 16:36:04

There is a tights troll who pops up every now and then to ask lots of questions about tights and sweat and young girls/boys.


Do search on OP's name, and one on 'tights troll'.

oh lovely

tis the full moon I see, is that when it comes out from under its bridge then??

purepurple Sat 06-Jun-09 16:36:37

how sad
I have visions of a little man wearing a cloth cap rubbing his hands on his thighs, all glazed eyes and foaming at the mouth, while saying "tights!"
and now it won't go away

TheDevilWearsPenneys Sat 06-Jun-09 16:36:45

Yep 4 posts, all mentioning tights.

Including one about a 10 year old boy having to wear them for ballet (eurgh)

Mnhq should ban the OP.

princessmel Sat 06-Jun-09 16:38:21

agree re banning

TrillianAstra Sat 06-Jun-09 16:38:32

Joy, the tights again!

FabulousBakerGirl Sat 06-Jun-09 16:38:38

They might if it is reported.

psychomum5 Sat 06-Jun-09 16:38:40

ta very much pure for sharing your vision

<<goes to scrub eyes to see if the little man will go away>>

I've just been emailed by mnhq saying they have banned the user.

MollieO Sun 07-Jun-09 13:28:51

Won't they just reappear under another name. What an odd topic to troll about!

piscesmoon Sun 07-Jun-09 13:45:26

I can't see why anyone would want to troll about tights-weird!

bruffin Sun 07-Jun-09 14:34:37

It's the same troll who gets excited about getting their teenage daughter into kilt style skirts for school, and their teenage boy into shorts for school and their 4yr old into cotton nappies.
