Seeing as rules on appearance seem to be in vogue...
Reading DD's uniform booklet recently I was surprised (but very pleased) to see that as well as s tud earrings, girls may wear a crucifix (but no other jewellery).
Is this the general rule, or is DD's school an exception?
The only reason why many schools adopt the no jewellery whatsoever approach is because in the PC times that we live with so much religious senstivity around every sense of proportion or sanity has been completley lost: a school says OK to crucifix, but then someone will say hey what about crescents? Another will say, yes but how large should the Crucifix be (perhaps of Madonna proportions?)! And is not the cross an instrument of torture?
To avoid all this silliness above most schools just ban jewellery altogether and get over with it. Personally I wear very frequently crucifixes although I am an atheist. At school because it was a gift from my mother and I love my mother and today because it is a gift from my husband, whom I love as well - not to mention that it simply looks beautiful. Sometimes things are far simpler that we make them be in society
