(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Some parents of girl students studying in higher classes of Indian School Sur are upset with a new decision on uniforms.

The school had introduced knee-length pinafores in place of salwar kameezes for girls of all classes, but some parents of those in higher classes have raised objections.

The Board of Directors (BoD) of Indian Schools in #Oman has said it is looking into the matter.

A written complaint by some parents (a copy of which is with Muscat Daily) states that the school management committee (SMC) did not take their consent before introducing pinafores.

''Instead of handling the issue rightly, the SMC angered parents. Around 350 parents had signed a petition against the new uniform, but the management was adamant on implementing the change,'' a parent said.

Wilson George, chairman of the BoD said, ''The board received a complaint from parents of Indian School Sur students. One of the issues raised by them was the SMC'decision to have new uniforms for girl students in senior classes.

''Following up on the complaint, the BoD convened a meeting of the committee and parents recently. The parents were assured that no decision on the dress code would be taken without taking the views of parents into consideration.''

He said the new dress code has been left optional, adding that there was no controversy  over pinafores in other Indian schools in Oman.

The uniform for girl students of Indian School Sur was salwar kameez till a couple of months ago.The SMC's decision to implement the new guidelines without taking the parents into confidence has upset them, George noted.

''All the decisions and policy guidelines of the new board will be taken after consulting and listening to the views of parents and teachers.

''Our aim is to raise the academic environment of all the Indian schools in Oman,'' said George who assumed charge along with other new BoD members last mon
