Q5. What is the requirement for girl's skirt and socks?

A: As part of the school dress code (for teachers/staff and students), uniform skirts must be long enough to cover the knee, and long socks (stockings) need cover the knee so no skin is exposed while standing. For girls with small waist size and long legs, please order the right length of skirt and customize the waist by either using elastic bands or adding more fabric materials, or simply choose to wear pants instead.
