COPY; BOYS at a Cardiff school swapped trousers for skirts yesterday ??? to take a stand against a ban on shorts. The 17-strong group of Year 10 boys at Whitchurch High School raised eyebrows when they were seen in the morning striding around the school in borrowed skirts. Despite rumours that the pupils had been sent home, headteacher Huw Jones-Williams told the Echo no-one had been punished. He said: ???We had a conversation with some boys this morning and they have worn trousers.???
