A SCHOOL IN Iowa has confirmed that ninth grade girls hired a male stripper to perform at their school’s synchronised swimming club’s annual banquet.

District spokesman Phil Roeder told The Des Moines Register today that the Roosevelt High School principal will decide whether the girls violated school policies and punishment is merited.

The girls are aged 14 and 15 years.

A father of one of the team members said the students hired the stripper as a joke and he “didn’t take off all of his clothes” at the event at the Des Moines Social Club last Friday.

Roeder said a club employee asked the stripper to leave, deeming the appearance inappropriate for the students.
