Apac school calls crisis meeting after miniskirts strike


The authorities at Aduku secondary school in Apac district have summoned the members of board of governors and PTA executive to an impromptu crisis meeting to decide on the next course of action following a violent strike by students which resulted into the destruction of school property worth Shs100 million.

According to notice sent to all members of board of governors and the PTA executive members dated 12th June 2016 and signed by the school head teacher Patrick Okwir Angulu who also doubles as the secretary board of governors, the meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 15th June 2016 at 10:0Am.

According to the notice, a copy of which Insider obtained, there shall also be an emergency meeting for all the parents on Friday 17th June 2016 at the school precincts.

The meeting shall be used to decide on the fate of over 1500 students who were sent back home on Saturday after the violent strike.

The school management says the Saturday night strike was sparked off by a ban on wearing of mini-skirts and tight trousers.

Last week, the school administration confiscated all mini-skirts and tight trousers, a move which reportedly annoyed the students.

Before the strike, the students had also claimed that they were not comfortable with having porridge for breakfast early in the morning at 6am, the time when they should still be enjoying their sleep.

The headmaster, Mr Patrick Okwir Angulo, said last term, they issued a circular to all parents warning that mini-skirts and tight trousers would not be allowed in school.

This was after it was realised that girls cut their long skirts and saw them into mini-skirts.

Boys were also reducing the size of their normal trousers making them tight.
