Allow male students discretion to wear shorts or pants irrespective of the school term.

Norwood College has a proud history of providing first class education and support to the communities of Maroondah. Student learning and development is underpinned by the values of Respect, Responsibility, Aspiration and Resilience. Hence, it is with some dismay that the college has reversed a decision to allow male students to wear either shorts or pants at the discretion of the parents and students without proper consultation with the school community.

It is the desire of the undersigned that the policy allowing male students discretion to wear shorts or pants irrespective of the school term (or season) be reinstated forthwith. This gives male students the same ability as the female students to dress according to the weather and their level of comfort.

It is our hope the College continues to develop a strong collegiate atmosphere of sharing and support including a deep sense of worth and the capacity to overcome negative experiences or disappointments as stated in the values and expectations of Norwood Secondary College by giving this request (petition) appropriate consideration.
