Well, I guess the Navy Blue pinafore isn't quite as bad as some of the other uniforms out there, but pinafores in general aren't very practical, if you ask me. I remember how inconvenient it was on days when we had PE, and we had to wear our T-shirt and shorts underneath. And if it just so happened to be a really hot day in mid-July, then it would feel really hot and uncomfortable. At least the prefects get to wear a Navy Blue skirt and White blouse, but of course the down side of the prefect uniform is having to wear the tie all day everyday! I always wished we could have had the kinds of uniforms that were allowed at UWC and SAS. In the case of SAS, the girls have a choice between long pants, bermudas, and skirts, as long as they are all in Navy Blue. And they could wear a white shirt, polo top, or T-shirt. For UWC, they had pale greyish blouses with light blue and grey pin stripes, and they could only wear that particular kind of school blouse. For the girls, they had a choice of long pants, bermudas or skirts, but all in grey colour. Most of the private schools are like that, at the most they have a school blouse, then they can pretty much choose what they want to wear from the waist down, as long as it is similar to the colour dictated by the school, so they end up having more of a dress code rather than strictly having a school uniform like the way it is in other Singaporean schools. Actually my favourite part of the RGS uniform is the blouse, because of the way we wear it, with the end of each sleeve folded. I think it makes the plain white blouse look smarter under the pinafore when we wear it that way However, Navy Blue does seem to be a rather "serious looking" colour, and I actually prefer the lighter blue colour similar to the ones that the CHIJ girls use. Just one question though, is it just my imagination, or do guys just seem to have more of a reaction whenever a CHIJ gal in a lighter blue pinafore walks by?? Hey, I don't mean to imply anything here, or to offend anyone, just an observation on my part from eons ago when I was still in Sec School... not sure I ever understood the reason for the reaction, that's all. Hmmm..... BTW, JediClare, does RGS still have that one day a year when you are allowed to wear whatever you want to wear to school?? I still remember what I chose to wear on my one-day-a-year... a skate shirt, a pair of bermudas, and my trusty skateboard in hand as an accessory/weapon/personal on-campus mode of transportation, whichever is the greater need at the time - lol!
