We would like to remind parents that the latest fashion trend for boys of having very short sides with longer hair on top, ie a significant difference in length, where the hair is not blended in or graduated, is not a permitted hairstyle for school.  There is a very fine line between what is acceptable and what is not acceptable and we ask parents to be mindful of this when having their children's hair cut.  Please keep fashion trends/styles for holidays only and ensure that your child's hairstyle conforms to the school policy, as having to confront parents often causes distress.
