School uniforms versus personal expression

In 1999 Monica Brady, deputy head girl of Waiheke High School, left the school after she was sent home for wearing a singlet dress. Singlets were not permitted under the school’s dress code, but Monica argued that singlet dresses were not specifically identified in the code. She believed that school students should be allowed to choose what they wore because clothes were an expression of personality.
