    Why do they spill the ink and signing on shirts??. At least just put it up on faces or hands...Crazy. No wonder why our youths are later looking for jobs in foreign countries.

    You're right...There are lot of school students still couldn't afford to get second uniform in this country. O/L,A/L students better donate uniforms after studies if its possible. Enjoy the events and every moment in life !!!!, at the same time be a responsible,helpful person in the society. Our youth mentality is different from comparing with many countries.

    Good job staying in school and finishing up. Regardless of the test results you have a bright future.

    I am a professor working at a leading university in the US. However, as a school kid, I had only 2 uniforms. Right after OL class, the richest student in our class, secretly put an open ink tube of a pen inside my pocket. When I went home, my mother observed that the trouser was totally blue. She had no money to buy me another uniform, neither I would wear the same cloth twice. But I did wear the same uniform twice in AL class, washed it end of the second day, and wear it two more days again, ironed the uniform early morning with a charcoal iron. I had to do this for one whole year, until my aunt observed it, and gave me another uniform to be worn in grade 13. After passing AL with rank 10 in my highly competitive district for Mathematics, I gave the newer of the two used uniforms to another younger fella in my same school. In our school, it was perhaps only me, and the recipient of my used uniform were the only low income people. Life could've been easier if ink jokes were not there.

    Stop this nonsense anymore. This is the reason why our country is sinking.

    Can this shirt and the trouser could be worn again? What a pain these children are giving to their parents. Stupid students.

    R.M. Wickramaratne (Principal of Colombo School) Thursday, 16 May 2024 06:24 AM

    Honestly speaking, the Principal of the College/School should send these children back home on at least one week punishment for the damage they did. Some boys were drawing in the walls also with felt pen.

    The parents should be blamed for such acts. How could we improve our education system keeping such idiots.
