Several Catholic schools across the GTA will look different in just over a week as kilts become banned, published reports say.

The Globe and Mail is reporting that some schools have banned the item because girls are hiking their kilts.

The Dufferin-Peel Catholic Board says just six of 25 high schools still allow kilts, meanwhile two schools in Halton will soon join two others who have already banned the uniform item.

A newspaper is reporting that one of Toronto-based uniform supplier R.J. McCarthy's worst sellers is the kilt since so many schools have banned the item.
