Low cut ball dress ban

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:27 pm on 25 May 2016

An Auckland girls college has sparked controversy over its new guidelines for what its students can wear at their school ball.

A petition has been launched against St Dominic's new rules, and so far it has nearly 5-thousand signatures.

According to the petition, students have been told that no cleavage can be shown at all, the back of the dress cannot go below the armpit, and a split in the dress can only go up to the knee.

The Principal of St Dominics, Carol Coddington tells Jesse Mulligan that the rules are about dressing appropriately.
