    I go to a catholic school since I was 5 and have to wear a uniform which has been a jumper when I was a Junior and now a skirt as a senior but the whole way through all of us girls have always had to wear black shorts under our jumpers and skirts and I never really understood why.

    shorts under the jumper seems harsh

    It depends on how short the skirts are. If they are an average school skirt then I don't understand the requirement of wearing shorts but no one would see the shorts (including the teachers).

    That's weird. My girlfriend went to a faith school (Jewish, not Catholic) where they had to wear skirts. Not only was there no rule making them wear shorts underneath but the reverse, they weren't allowed to wear them even if they wanted to. Why would a school make girls wear skirts then go the opposite way with their underwear?

    Probably for modisty and stop any chance of other people getting an upskirt view to see your panties, something else could be that it is to de-sexualise everything. I think that it is a bit strange though as to the point of wearing shorts under skirts etc any way
