Brisbane high school threatens to suspend student for most bizarre reason.

The school threatened to suspend the student for wearing the wrong socks!

Kenmore State High School in Brisbane wants to punish one if its students after he failed to attend detention for breaching the uniform policy by wearing generic socks, The Courier Mail reported.

The student’s breach was wearing generic white socks instead of the school’s own branded socks.

The student’s mother, told reporters her son had worn the same type of generic white socks all year but it wasn’t until recently was sent a breach notice.

According to Kenmore State High School policy, parents of a student found in breach of uniform policy are sent a letter and the student is given lunch time detention for every day of breach.

If they fail to attend lunch time detention twice, as this student did, then they are given an after school detention and if they miss that then they risk suspension.

Sara was informed that if her son failed to attend his next detention on Friday then he would be suspended.

‘I have no issue with kids wearing school uniforms just the schools need to make up their minds and stick to their own policies and communicate that more effectively with parents,’ the mum said.

The mum claims her husband attended a recent P&C meeting where the quality of the socks were being taken into consideration and they were informed students wouldn’t receive detention if the did not have them.

  • I know some private schools are very strict on uniforms, but suspension over socks seems OTT.

  • Uniform is supposed to be uniform! But if the whole year the kid was allowed then what happened all of a sudden..
