Let us wear our School Of Rugby hoodies in class -

This is a Petition for our School of Rugby hoodies to be made dress code. We believe they should be part of the dress code because we represent the school team by wearing them, numerous teachers have commented on how smart they look and there has been no problem with wearing them up until now.

With regards to the issue of having to allow school trip hoodies if you allow the rugby hoodies, this does not have to happen as we represent the school on a daily and weekly basis as a team and a club. We are a community, and not just part of a one off trip with a hoodie for memories.

The hoodie gets us recognised around the school, and outside of school. This gives us great pride and we would like to continue this into class. We feel like there is no need to remove the hoodies as they represent Knox and its values.

For those who do not know we paid for these hoodies, and we have previously been allowed to wear then in class. Until recently where in a meeting the Knox Academy Senior Staff decided that these hoodies are no longer dress code.

Within our school of Rugby Program we have several teams, who have received the hoodies. We also have the first Girls School of Rugby in East Lothian and a 24 strong S1 team. All the hoodies across the team are the same and are instantly recognizable within our school.
