In Bishop Okoth Mbaga Secondary school, parents have been warned against ‘scanty’ dressing while at school.
The directive was issued by Siaya County Director of Education Leonard Kabaki, who warned the parents.
Kabaki, who was responding back to what the deputy principal of the school said to parents, he asked the parents not to dress ‘too skimpy’ while doing the school drop off and pickups.
“We have some parents who are very negligent. Parents should be good role models. You have been told about dressing code and negative comments on social platforms targeting teachers.’
“Wearing clothes that are too skimpy is not setting a good example and so any parents visiting students in schools must make a good choice of their clothes. Parents need to show a good example of standards of dress.” he added.
The director further warned parents on making negative comments about their children’s schools on social media.
“Never should you go on social media or mainstream with issues of the school. The parents can either reach my office or face the school, and iron out issues.”
The school’s deputy president, Judith Awino lamented that some parents had been showing up in school in miniskirts, low-cut tops and pajamas.
“As a school, we can only advise you to consider dressing more appropriately. I have noticed there has been an increasing tendency for parents to escort children to and from school while still wearing their pajamas.” She added.
