No short shorts for Lyneham

By Kerces 28 November 2006 25

I have heard from several sources that this morning at Lyneham High School a special assembly was called at which it was announced that short shorts for girls would be banned because some “female staff and male staff” found the exposed legs “offensive”.

The girls were told that any shorts they wore to school must be longer than 15cm from knee on ground to hem. Several said teachers then went around measuring. One person claimed to have been given a detention because hers were too short, despite the rule having only been announced today (although others said they hadn’t heard of anyone being penalised yet).

Lyneham High is a public school and currently has a colour code of blue or maroon tops with any kind of bottoms. As an outside observer, it seems like a lot of students there wear polos with the school logo, but it could just be that I know the kind of people who will wear school uniform shirts.

One girl said she wondered if the teachers were jealous of their legs while another thought that it was the kind of rule “that always gets put it when the principal goes away and someone else takes over”. No one thought it would seriously last for long (there’s only three weeks of school left anyway) and some thought there would be a lot more short shorts around this week, even on the boys, in protest.

What’s Your opinion?

No hot teachers? I reckon that’s nonsense Non_Seq.

I for one am married to one very hot science teacher – and damn you should see her in her lab coat and… OK, I’ll leave it there for now.

BTW – have you never heard (or seen the video) for Van Halen’s Hot for teacher? 🙂

seepi, teachers use to measure skirts etc as late as the 80’s so it’s nothing new.

In a school the size of Lyneham (1000), I highly doubt staff were measuring shorts. It’s the end of term 4, reports are due and assessment needs marking.

I’m sure they’d drop everything to do that. Besides, I think it is nothing more than a case of Chinese Whispers.

who cares what they wear?
It seems more offensive to me to have teachers measuring girls legs with rulers.
Are boys alowed to wear short shorts?
What do they wear for PE?
