As schools in Anambra state are set to reopen for the 2022/2023 academic section, the government of Anambra state has banned the wearing of mini-length uniforms in schools.
The commissioner of Education, Professor Ngozi Chuma Udeh announced this during an interactive meeting with Education Secretaries of public and mission schools held at ASUBEB hall, Awka, Anambra State.
According to the post which was shared on the Anambra state ministry of Education’s Facebook page, the Commissioner condemned the growing trend of putting on mini-length uniforms in schools, saying it goes against the acceptable dress code for schools in the state and the country at large.
According to the Commissioner, a student should look smart, well groomed, project positive vibes and not be indecently dressed for school.
She added that the acceptable length for uniforms in the state remains knee length and not above the knee as is fast becoming the norm.
The Commissioner charged the Education Secretaries to ensure schools comply with the directives and salvage the future of the students of Anambra state.
She charged the participants to infuse the right morals and discipline in students so they grow to be rational human beings, showing them there is more to life.
