Hi just wondering if anyone knows why secondary schools request a photo on applications for school. I have no objection giving a photo of my child once they have been accepted. I don´t understand why a school would want or need a photo before being accepted. Are they chosen based on their looks?. If anyone knows why the schools need them could you let me know. When I asked the school I was told that it was needed but would be kept private.
