WGP College Unisex Uniform Option

Hey guys! This is a petition to make long pants an option for female students. It'd be really helpful if you could sign to help make this happen. 

Letter to BOT:

Hello Board of Trustees

 I am a year 12 learner at Whangaparaoa College. I have been attending since year 7 and have been an active participant throughout my years. I wish to address the issue of the girl’s school uniform.

I understand that the school uniform long pants are strictly for boys. However, I believe that it would be beneficial if they became an option for female learner’s at the school. Particularly during the winter months, many learners feel that pencil skirts are impractical due to the cold weather.

In addition to this, female learners often find themselves in positions where the pencil skirts are inappropriate. With the new tuckshop in place, female students standing on the floating walkway feel uncomfortable with the influx of students below. The restrictive material and design makes it difficult for female learners to walk up and down stairs within school grounds. When wearing stockings in an effort to compensate for the lack of warmth, learners find that this causes the skirts to twist and ride up.

Due to the reasons outlined above, I propose that uniform pants should be an option for female learners to maximise and practicality. I believe this will benefit female learners at Whangaparaoa College as it will provide an extra layer of warmth allowing for concentration in class, easier movement and much needed comfort.

Yours Sincerely


Rachel Johnson
