Students are afraid that they will be rejected from their formal high school after a dress code has been entered.

Kerikeri High School in New Zealand has banned dresses that are shorter than ankle length, necklines and splits.

The school that also has a mandate must have one color and during the event on July 27, ties must be worn.

A final-year student told me New Zealand Herald the rules forced students to hide their bodies.

& # 39; By saying they want more gender and body-inclusive, the clothing code they have set does the opposite, & # 39; they said.

Do you think the dress code at Kerikeri High School is too strict?

& # 39; That's why many people go to the ball and feel uncomfortable in what they wear. & # 39;

The student added class members had to pay extra fees to get their dresses changed to meet the requirements.

A second student said the rules & # 39; were ridiculous and that & # 39; & # 39; devastating & # 39; would be.

The ball has always been formal, but students wanted a dress code to avoid & # 39; confusion & # 39 ;.

Mrs. Forgie said the code was not gender-specific and appealed to everyone.

& # 39; The last thing the students wanted is that someone might misinterpret what has always been a written guide and we don't want anyone to spoil the night, & # 39; she said.
