One of the most contentious statements made during the pupil free day was that we have to wear closed in shoes. It sounded like broken toes are highest on the list of claims for Workplace Health and Safety. It sounded on Facebook like most of us were out scouring the shops for cheap yet acceptable replacements for the sandals we have been wearing. The heat is the major issue for me against the decision. I will not wear tights with these shoes in this hot weather.
Anyway, I was fortunate enough to find some Colorado sandals which may just fit the bill, covered toes but sides cut out. (Note for DFO at Brisbane Airport - better signage is needed for drivers coming in on the new flyover from the Gold Coast direction! I ended up at the Domestic terminal first!)
