#66: I really don't know much about private schooling but..my little cousin goes to a private school and if you see her lunch menu compared to my school's..well WOW! I guess that's one bonus

Screw you! Not all schools are the same. That's like saying all music sounds good. Some music sucks- like songs by Justin beiber. other music is awesome like jazz and rock and indie.

66 - Private schools are private schools, no matter how dumb you think they are. Meaning, you're still more likely to get a better education, or at least more attention from teachers in your classes, you have some advantage when it comes to applying for colleges. It's not necessarily coming from a private school that makes you slutty or stuck up. Plenty of students in public school do drugs too. Sounds like you're just ignorant and have failed to look at both sides of the argument.

Yes 66 i am quite certainly agree on the homosexuality of private schools, I mean really, Private schools! (that was a sarcastic remark upon the use of the word "gay"

When I was in high school (a public one) we could have any piercings we wanted. I had and still have quite a few piercings, none on my face though. But, I knew tons of people who had facial piercings.

I went to private school and although your comment does not apply to me (I'm a guy btw), I completely agree! Thank god I was lucky enough to go to public (free) college (16-18 I'm in England!) best two years of my life!

85, No doubt there are those who only get piercings to look cool, but that can be said about anything. However, that of course does not mean that every person who has a piercing is just trying to impress others. It may not be your thing, but your statement is pretty damn ignorant.

You know that schools in Australia and the US/UK/Canada are very different. I have never heard of a normal public school or private school that don't wear uniforms. Pretty much every school in Australia you have to wear uniforms. Except if you're in a special school or country school. And you are allowed to wear nose piercings but it must be clear. But some schools don't care as much. But I go to a public school and you can get suspended from any piercing that is visible other then the ears and if you do not take them out it can lead to expulsion. But private schools and public schools are pretty much the same. Private schools tend to be more stricter and have better resources. But it is part of the same curriculum as public. And most of the private schools in Australia have some sort of religion associated with it. In Australia nobody really judges what school you go to, only you.

132 - well the thing is I know maybe 10 people with a nose piercing, and all of them are posers. Now I'm not saying it's like this everywhere, that's impossible (someone had to START the trend) but at this point it's just unlikely.

@58: It sounds like your school just sucks. My cousin goes to an all-male Christian private school and the dress code is basically wear some kind of a shirt, pants, and shoes, and you're good.

In Australia private schools (grammar schools) kids are actually require to wear uniforms. Neat, literally uniform uniforms. And their hair has to be up or short for girls and short only for boys.

Amongst other anal details like no noticeable piercings. Actually Australia as a whole is a lot more strict on those sorts of thing than you would think. Even public schools.

In almost every public school in Aus you have to wear a uniform (normally a polo shirt) and depending on the school they can be strict on piercings, that said I was school captain and had facial piercings, as did the vice captain. Private school uniforms are suits and ties or a tunic. Whether you're private or public doesn't really matter, I've met deadshits and intelligent, driven people from both private and public.

A lot of public schools in Australia don't allow facial piercings, it's ridiculous, at my school, people get detention for wearing any other colour but white socks.

I go to a private Christian school, and we have uniforms and all... I have two facial piercings, and it seems so pointless that I have to take them out to sit in a classroom for a few hours. :/

I see what you both are saying. a pimple is a form of acne but it's a single blemish. usually, acne is spread across an area and is with a group of other blemishes. so if you had one or two pimples, you wouldn't say you had acne. and if you had acne, you wouldn't say you had a pimple you know what I mean?

I got suspended once coz I Bladdered some kid when we were playing footy bcoz he was a wanker and didn't know how to play. School rules pssssssshhhhhhhhh they're complete bollocks

Reply

Uniform rules are usually to 1. Make kids not worry about what they're gonna wear and who they want to impress And 2. Look conservative and represent the school 'nicely'.

Almost happened to my friend in MS. She was constantly sent to the dean or principle by the same lady for her nose ring but she was allowed to wear it for religious purposes

Reply

got to love school rules, when you're a teacher and can wear almost anything -.- my school uniform rules, no makeup, peircings,jewelary,fake tan, jeans, light coloured trousers, non black shoes and trainers, hoodies, jackets, hats, black shirts and lastly any variations in colour in the things we have to wear student have to wear official school jumper with brown trousers or same trousers with white shirt and school official tie teachers wear what they want :/

that's embarrassing... if you're gonna get suspended atleast have some fun and go wild. cuss a teacher out, punch the dean, maybe even poop on the floor....and it was right on the kisser
