Sydney high school is taking backlashes from parent for their decision to ban her Year 10 students graduating because they wear fake nails.
The students from Mackellar Girls Campus are denied access into the graduation hall and rather hold them in separate room.
The seventy students missed out on the graduation ceremony because they break the school’s dress code.
This incident left parents of barred students furiously left the ceremony to their places of work because of time wasting as a result of the disciplinary measures going on.
The school authority has also been accused of ‘double standard’ since the female teachers wear fake and colorful nails.
Reacting to the viral news, the president of the local school district has termed the ban ‘completely unjustified’ and will be taking the matter up with Australia’s Department of Education.
Another mother whose daughter is also barred fault the school management of acting wicked, since some of the students wear the nails four days already to the ceremony, yet the school didn’t speak against it until graduation day.
However, a spokesperson for the Department stood by the school’s management.
The spokesperson confirmed that only 20 of 239 Year 10 students at the school was not given their portfolio on stage due to their acrylic nails, not that they were not in the hall for the assembly.
