It Pays To Dress Decently

Dear Editor, Improper dressing, especially among boys, has become fashionable in many schools in the country and this is worrying.

It is an eyesore to see boys with their trousers or shorts pulled down to expose their underwear, a style popularly known as "Otto Pfister", while others wear the shirts with the collar turned up. They do this to attract attention.

It is important for young people to know that improper dressing does not make a student a hero; it rather exposes the student to a whole lot of troubles.

For instance, if there is a misdeed in school, such a student is easily suspected because he is seen as a bad boy.

Even though that student may not be the culprit, the embarrassment he may go through will be enough to disturb his studies.

Parents should, therefore, advise their children to dress decently. Rules and regulations on decent dressing in schools must also be enforced rigorously by headteachers.

Students should endeavour to adopt acceptable standards and good behaviour in society.
