    You have to were a full school uniform while you're in Saturday detention because that's what the school's rules say you must do. No if's, ands, or buts.

    Suck it up; put on your uniform; and go serve your detention. You're being punished for your behavior; and detention is supposed to be as miserable as possible, as a future deterrent. If you can't see the point, I don't know how to explain it to you.

    If you don't want to have to serve more Saturday detentions in full school uniform, then don't throw chairs around in class at lunchtime.

    • saturday detention was HORRIBLE it was so dull and boring and to make things worse my mum picked me up from detention then we went straight to my aunts house while i was still in school uniform my mum said that is all part of the punishment this went i spent all saturday in uniform HAVE SYMPATHY ?

    its all about disiplne and punishment , you have to wear school uniform every day for school so its makes sense that you have to wear it for a saturday detention which is a punishment after all your being punished so detention should be made to be as misreable as possible

    Some day you may wish that you could pay for a crime just by sitting for four hours and writing an essay. 

    If you did that at a job or at someones house or at a social venue - you could be sued and have to pay money or even face jail time. Plus it would be a permanent mark on your reputation and be put on your criminal record. As an adult if you were to do things like that - no longer considered being a minor - there are real and lasting consequences.

    Do the punishment and don’t complain.

    Oh do stop trolling, Elizibeth (silly spelling, btw). We're sick of reading these ludicrous fake accounts of idiotic behaviour.

    You are at school. If your school has a uniform why wouldn't you be wearing it?

      Newbury.:  Exactly!  That's why you're in Saturday detention and have to wear your full school uniform while you're there - you're being punished. Having to wear your full school uniform while you're in Saturday detention is a part of your punishment.

    It is designed to give you a reason to not repeat your poor behavior. If the school blew you kisses for your bad behavior, that wouldn't send the same message, right?

    Apparently you still don't understand the reason for your detention.

    Detention? I'd have made you do maintenance work around the school.
