PUPILS UNDERWEAR WARNING

PUPILS at Stranraer Academy have been warned about the amount of exotic underwear on show at the school.

But teachers have denied rumours that coloured thongs have been officially banned, saying such a move would be impossible to enforce. Pupils and parents contacted the Free Press this week, saying they had been told that girls at the school must only wear black or white underwear.

One pupil, who asked not to be named, said:

"A lot of the girls are wearing thongs now.

"Three girls were taken out of class last week and spoken to about what they were wearing. We have all been told about cleavage too.

"In fact, we were told that the three Bs - breasts, bellies and bums - are out.

"And we have been told about underwear. It has to be either black or white. Some of the girls have been wearing bright thongs in colours like orange or red. We have been told that is not on."

Another female student said:

"We have been told not to wear fluorescent thongs. It has to be black or white.

"We were told that some of the male teachers were feeling a bit uncomfortable with the situation."

The issue is understood to have been mentioned at senior assembly last week, although teachers deny issuing an outright ban on coloured underwear. Stranraer Academy rector Jimmy Higgins said:

"There were a couple of girls wearing very low cut trousers and showing their midriff. They were spoken to about that".
