Schools across the country re-opened on Wednesday to start the 2016 academic year.
CapeTalk/702’s Redi Tlhabi spoke to the listeners about the importance of children wearing school uniform, costs and its effects on learners.
Listen to the full conversation on the Redi Tlhabi Show:
In the schools where school uniform is well worn it does influence discipline. Where the shirts are tucked in, no make-up and no funny hairstyles— Claire, caller from Bryanston
If there was no school uniform children would become materialistic and I believe school uniform is important, it instils discipline— Bridget, caller from Krugersdorp
Here are some of the Twitter responses to the topic:
@RediTlhabi I go along with school uniform in terms of neatness,uniformity & sense of belonging.I looked good in mine— #SendMe SONA18 (@SkhosanaRose) January 13, 2016
