Talking points: What do you love / hate about the design of your school uniform?

Hate it when you can't talk back? Well, you can with Young Post. Have your say and share with students around Hong Kong

Andrew Kan, 18, Fung Kai Liu Man Shek Tong Secondary School

My school uniform is a white T-shirt. It is a dirty mess by the end of the day, especially since I love to play sports. I often get an earful from my mum when I get home. So I wish the uniform could be of any colour except white.

I like my school's tracksuit - a cotton sweater and a pair of baggy trousers made of nylon. It is very comfortable and I can move freely.

Janet Choi Ho-ching, 18, HKU Space Po Leung Kuk Community College

My summer uniform is fine - a blue shirt with a neck tie, and a blue skirt. It is quite comfortable and beautiful, too. But I hate the winter uniform. The collar is the main problem - it's badly designed and makes me feel very uncomfortable.

Natalie Fung, 16, St Paul's Co-educational College

I love the design of my school uniform which is similar to a qipao, or cheongsam, a traditional Chinese dress. It is classy and conveys charm and grace. Although many argue that a qipao is uncomfortable because it is too tight, I believe such a design contributes to the beauty and elegance of being Chinese.

Helen Wong, 15, Sha Tin College

Our uniform is lightweight but is often criticised for its see-through material. This is terribly awkward for everyone, especially girls. The good thing is that we're changing to a new uniform soon.

Mimi Lam, 17, St Margaret's Co-educational English Secondary & Primary School

Ours is a one-piece uniform, which is easy when you're changing. However, I hate our summer uniform because it's white, and I'm a messy eater! It's always annoying when food stains spoil my uniform, and everyone knows what has happened!\
