Just a week ago, the Ateneo de Manila University announced that its Senior High School Program will open its doors to girls as part of the K-to-12 Program of the Department of Education starting school year 2016-2017. People were quick to react: “Yay!” from the undergraduates and “Boo” from those who’ve already graduated. Meanwhile at Style Bible: “Hello, Rajo?”
Although it has not been confirmed whether the girls would wear a uniform like the rest of the boys, we tapped the designers on our speed dial to share their take on the Ateneo high school girl uniform should the school implement one. The results? Well, let’s just say the sketches already make us want to sit in on a class.
