The hairstyle reportedly prompted the Dunrobin Primary School student to be sent home. The contributed image was reportedly taken on April 7, 2022.


The contentious issue of inappropriate hairstyles for students in schools has made its way to the fore again following the recent dismissal of a male student from a St. Andrew-based primary school.

The 11-year-old student of the Dunrobin Primary School was sent home with a letter to his mother on April 6 demanding that he does not return to the premises until his hairstyle is fixed.

Attorney-at-law Bert Samuels was retained by the student’s mother.


In a letter to the school’s principal dated April 8, the attorney says they were instructed that the student practices proper hair hygiene.

Mr. Samuels says the school’s actions goes against the education ministry’s policy.

Mr. Samuels says upon their advice, the student was taken to school on Friday to attend classes.

He added that if the school refuses to comply, an injunction will be served.


Meanwhile, Mr. Samuels says the letter to Dunrobin Primary has been sent to education minister, Fayval Williams and culture minister, Olivia Grange, among other officials.
