You are here Parents School Policy on the Wearing of Jewellery
The following was adopted as a school policy on the wearing of jewellery by the Board of Management in June 2006 following consultations with the teachers and Parents Council.
The safety of our children is our first priority. Experience in other schools tells us that any jewellery worn in physical education lessons is an unnecessary risk and should be avoided at all times. Serious accidents have occurred because of contact between pupils wearing earrings or studs and other pupils or equipment, thus damaging the ear, or where items of jewellery have caught in apparatus and torn the ear lobe. Rings on fingers, chains and bangles are potential hazards.
This policy was ratified by the Board on 13th June 2006 following discussion and consideration by the Parents Council.
