Why Is A Dress Code Needed?
In selecting a dress code for the students at Kinross College, there was a commonly asked question by parents and students. The following reasons answered and keeping answering this question:
It enhances how the public perceives the school. A well designed, presentable uniform makes the public hold Kinross College in high esteem. A presentable uniform improves the image of image school.
A system where all the students follow a particular dress code helps build team spirit and develop a sense of oneness. It makes the students think and act as one. This is one of the aims of Kinross College.
There are many school activities organised by Kinross College, and a dress code helps ensure that every student is adequately dressed for each activity.
This is also a way to maintain a sense of equality among the students. Fingers are not equal, and Kinross College students come from various backgrounds. To prevent unnecessary competition among students, a dress code had to be introduced. This way, there is no competition for who has the most expensive clothes.
Ease of identification is another cogent reason. Students are expected to be properly dressed all the time. This means that individuals who are neither students nor members of staff can easily be spotted if there stray to the college grounds. This is important to ensure the safety of students and staff members.
It is also a way of preparing students for the future. There are some workplaces where wearing uniforms is strictly enforced. Some professions like medicine, nursing, and firefighting require you to wear a uniform always. Kinross College uses a dress code system to teach its students to begin to adapt to wearing uniforms in case they find themselves working in a capacity that requires them to.
There is a dress code policy every student has access to. Every student is also expected to wear a uniform with the Kinross College logo attached to it.
