What are you wearing today?

When you get home, ask your parents what kind of clothes they used to wear when they were your age. Children's clothes nowadays are mostly made in big factories from easily laundered material, such as polyester and treated cotton.

Children's clothes are now also cut looser at the arms and shoulders to allow ease of movement at play. Runners and other soft shoes have replaced the sturdy leather boots of the days when Donegal children made long journeys to school on foot.

Most schoolchildren wear simple uniforms made up of a crested sweater and dark skirt or trousers.


Do you wear a school uniform? Would you rather not or do you think it makes your life easier? What do you feel about it?
