A school did conduct a uniform check, and a teacher did proceed to check the colour of bra straps during the inspection. As it is, this is how it all went down.
According to Chinese daily Shin Min Daily News, a female teacher, believed to be the Secondary 4-year head, had unbuttoned students’ uniforms to verify the colour of their bra straps during the attire check. Apparently, Nanyang Girls’ High students are permitted to wear only white or beige undergarments.
Having supposedly done the attire check on behalf of the male form teacher, the teacher allegedly undid the collar buttons of students’ attires and pulled out their bra straps.
You should never pull anyone’s bra strap, even if you’re a teacher doing an inspection
While some netizens are torn or even insouciant over the bra-strap pulling incident at Nanyang Girls’ High School, people have to understand (especially the ones telling girls “It’s nothing,”) that there is no way pulling a child’s underwear is okay unless it’s to save their life.
During a routine uniform check, though, an insensitive and borderline abusive teacher has gone too far and pulled on girls’ bra straps. Who does that? Why are you so interested in the color of their bras when you can see it through a white blouse if they were violating the dress code anyway?
And anybody who thinks that this is okay better get their underwear pulled this way and that without warning and see how they like it.

Pre-school teacher who humiliated 5-year-old boy suspended
A pre-school teacher who humiliated a 5-year-old boy for spotting long hair has been temporarily suspended by the school. The boy’s father had written a lengthy email post on Saturday (9 Jul) recounting how the teacher made his son stand in front of the class for sporting long hair, and put a “girl hair clip” on him, “much to the amusement of all the other kids”. The teacher further threatened to repeat the action the next school day if the boy did not cut his hair by then.
In his Facebook post which has since gone viral with over 2000 shares, the boy’s father Eric Cheong said that his son told him that he felt like dying. The father, painted the teacher who he identified as Ms Theresa, as ‘monster’ who the pre-schoolers were terribly afraid of. Eric said:
“What has happened to my son today is just one of the many, I would have to say improper conducts, for an early childhood teacher to be exhibiting. A few other parents also feedback Ms Theresa would use marker or pen that she is holding to poke on our children’s foreheads when they answered wrongly to her questions. She will use a water spray and spray into the kid’s mouth if they ever seen yawning in her class. She had in a few situations, tied up the kid’s legs together if they swing their legs in class. Just last week, my boy’s classmate vomited in class and she had the decency to make the kid clean up the vomit by herself, even though she was unwell.”read more
