Apac school refuses to lift miniskirt ban after strike


The management of Aduku Secondary School in Apac district has retaliated that they shall continue enforcing the ban against miniskirts for girls and tight trousers for boys despite the strike orchestrated by students last week, which cost the school Shs100 million worth of property.

Speaking to The Insider Wednesday evening in a telephone interview, the Head teacher of Aduku secondary school, Patrick Okwir Angulu, said as the school authorities they are not thinking about lifting the ban and any student who cannot abide by the ban should quit and look for a school where such indecent and immoral behaviour is practiced.

Okwir Angulu added that they have identified a handful of ringleaders who propelled the Saturday strike and that the board of governors and PTA executive of tomorrow will determine their fate of the embattled students.

The school boss asserted that all the students will reapply again to join the school when the date for reporting back to school is set.

He castigated the students who ignited the strike charging the students won’t suffer much because that it is the parents to suffer financial loss and psychological anguish to pay what the amounts for renovation of the damaged property.

The members of board of governors and PTA executive shall sit today to assess the damages caused by the students and make a decision on what should be done before the general PTA meeting on Friday to discuss the same issue.

According to the school management last 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.

Currently, more than 1500 students of the school have been suspended following the strike.
