200 Syrian refugees have been accommodated in the gym next to the Wilhelm Diess High School in Bavaria, Germany. This has led the principal of the school to issue a warning to the student's parents, Die Welt reports. In a letter he writes:
"For the refugees, access to the school gardens and buildings is strictly forbidden. The same goes for the school grounds during the day. The number of teachers on duty during breaks has been increased," reads the letter from principal Martin Thalhammer.
The letter goes on to give students instructions on how to deal with the situation:
"The Syrian refugees are mainly Muslims and speak Arabic. The refugees are marked by their own culture. Because our school is directly next to where they are staying, modest clothing should be worn, in order to avoid discrepancies. Revealing tops or blouses, shorts or miniskirts could lead to misunderstandings."
The move by the school has caused a lot of discussion, and Thalhammer has received queries from all over the media, reports the Passauer Neue Presse.
"There has never been a uniform rule at this school and there never will be." He said.
"But it is my duty to look after the children. Therefore I wanted to inform everyone about what is going on at school and what the gym is being used for."
"It was my responsibility to remind everyone that two cultures are coming together here," he said.
So, having the refugees behave is more difficult than imposing restrictions on female students, in the summer, got it.
