KD girls’ change of top

Manchester’s King David High is to change its girls’ summer uniform because pupils say the blouse can be see-though. A navy-striped shirt will replace the current white summer top next year.

Girls have been wearing the school jumper over the KD blouse.

Fifteen-year-old Sigalle Khan was impressed by the intended replacement. “It means you can take your jumper off in the summer when it gets too hot. I think everyone will get used to it.”

A King David spokesman said: “The [new] blouse is more elegant and further enhances the beautiful uniform.”

Over KD 150 pupils are variously on trips to Israel, playing concerts in Paris and attending summer camps in the Lake District.
