i have had petitions torn up in front of me by my student representative council. trust me dude, i have tried to make an impact. but i hav learned that skwl is a dictatorship, not a democracy. at my skwl, they put u down like a prostitute in court man.
and for the record, my hair is way longer than yours. my fringe alone goes past my mouth. so yeah, enough said.
im just not stupid enuf to bitch and moan about hair issues at skwl anymore, so i dont draw attention to myself.

Threatening to riot is’nt going to solve anything.
You can’t suddenly convince all the people to boycott school. Think about it for a second.
I suggest taking Antonio’s advice and moving to a school where you are free to be who you want to be, for those of you who can’t, just stick it out, we’ve only got a few years left, them we can all grow our hair, pierce our lips and cut ourselves(unless you already are)”sarcasm”
Its not just you emo’s, metal heads and skaters that want to grow your hair, us jocks want it too.

i think hair seperates you from the groups makes you who you are makes you fit the fashion how am i suppose to be in a black metal band with short hair ITS GAY its not hurting anyone its doing nothing wrong just alowing some1 to be who they are and they gave us rights FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION WHAT IF YOUR HAIR EXPRESSES WHO YOU ARE THEN THEY ARE TAKING OUR RIGHTS AWAY THATS ILLEGAL WE DONT WANT TO BE ROBOTS AND ALL LOOK THE SAME i think we should organise i country wide strike LET US GROW OUR HAIR

i wrote a petition on my schools web site to let us grow our hair but they just deleted it and shut it down on the students forum i did nothing wrong no voilence just wanted to express my fashion choice but Paarl Boys Primary is like the nazi group anything different or want to change gets shut down immediatly i think we should all plan a strike country wide

It is absolutely heartbreaking to see guys with cut hair. really, short hair is so unattractive and you should be allowed to express your own unbelievablely sexy sense of style. fuck ‘neatness’

Dear Gustave Dude!
In your presentation, please tell me that you mentioned that the length of a persons hair doesn’t affect the academic grade, it just boosts self-confidence… And to me, I’ll only enjoy going to school with self-confidence because of my long hair, but when my hair’s cut, I lose that self-confidence and then I don’t feel like going to school until I look like myself again… It makes sense..

Okay. . .Umm. . .This may sound kinda dumb, but a lot of people really love their hair. It’s a piece of who they are, it’s a way of showing the world a side of themselves and that’s something people generally miss. . .Take emo’s. Their hair has a lot to do with their style. In other words who they are. Making them cut it is saying they have to fit your description, because you don’t like their ‘look’. Isn’t that unfair? I think it is. I wouldn’t cut my hair for anything! I love it. It’s piece of me. It’s something special. . .

It’s pathetic that boys can’t express themselves similar to girls with a hair style that suits them. This ‘short back and sides’ bullshit is a legacy of the old Apartheid NP regime…It’s got to go! The sad part is that by the time most guys are allowed to grow their hair, they start loosing it. It really pissed me off at school when I was forced to look like Hitler and I get pissed off again when my son who is now 15 and 10 has to cut their hair. Good luck and hope you have success in your efforts, as my generation was too pathetic to make a stand!

Cutting your hair for school really seems like a waste of time to me?
i dont understand why they want each kid to look the same?
Guys should be allowed to grow their hair if they keep it neat and girls should be allowed to let it go loose i dont see i problem there, they are still gona wear uniform?
I think the only reason they make kids cut their hair is cause its been like that for-ever and some people, especially old people(no offense) is scared of change or what might happen.

I say they should give it a try.
I can grow my hair as you can tell from my picture and im in Gr10 and my school has great academics and its a brilliant school?

  1. Ek gaan doodeerlik wees…

    Dis absoluut pateties van hulle. Nou moan en kerm hulle op facebook…dit gaan nie help nie.

    Die taalgebruik is absoluut swak en ek kan nie glo dat hull APARTHEID in die situasie ingebring het. Die tienerbrein is absoluut amazing (of net baie onderontwikkeld)

    Jammer maar dis net hoe ek voel. As jou hare gesny moet word…so flippen what?!!! Make the best of your current situation. ‘It makes me lose my self-confidence’ – ‘n pot vol strooi man.

  2. lol

    en wat op aarde dink hulle gaan hulle maak indien hulle dalk weermag toe sou gaan? of hulle hare moet afsny vir ‘n operasie? of ‘n swemkompetisie probeer wen? gaan hulle dit dalk afsny as hulle eendag in ‘n universiteitskoshuis kom?

    min van hierdie kiddies besef dat, terwyl hulle een kant van die saak (soms) krities ondersoek, hulle weer heeltemal onkrities teenoor die ander kant is. die metalheads wat byvoorbeeld dink dit lyk “gay” om met kort hare te headbang, het duidelik nie die vermoë om krities te dink oor die einste metaltribe waaraan hulle dink hulle behoort nie.

    persoonlik dink ek die fout lê by die skool sowel as die idiote in die skool. en dit sluit die leerders in.

  3. Goed gese bertus…afskuwelik is dit nie (wel van toepassing op my maar dis nie nou ter sprake nie…dis in elkgeval nog net ‘n paar maande

    Ek het raad vir al die kinders wat so moan…

    Bou ‘n brug en kom oor jouself…

    Thank you and goodnight *curtsy*

  4. Die kinders kom van ‘n verskeidenheid skole. Hulle kla oor dieselfde grondwetlike reg wat hulle ontneem word: menswaardigheid.

    Luister na hulle klagtes; kyk verby hulle kreatiewe spelling. Hoor hulle internasionale hulproep.

    Vantevore het ons aanvaar kinders mag geslaan word met ‘n lat in skole. Niemand het dit bevraagteken nie; selfs liberale mense het gesê dis goed.

    Leerders is leerlinge genoem.

    Dis moeilik vir ons om afstand te doen van ‘n skolesisteem wat vir ons gewerk het, want “dit was mos goed”.

    Hoekom mag hare nie oor ore krul nie?

    En in ‘n samelewing waarin ons juis kritiese denkers wil oplei, sê ons “nee” vir ‘n begeleide gesprek… vir onderhandelinge… vir ‘n herwaardering van reëls.

    Ongeag of onderwysers die gesprek begelei of nie, word die gesprek steeds gevoer. En die jeug sweep mekaar op. Ongenuanseerd. Kwaad. Verontreg.

    Maar janee, “kinders moet gesien word, nie gehoor word nie”.

    * * *

    @aventer: die verwysing na “the old Apartheid NP regime” kom van ‘n ouer af, nie ‘n tiener nie: “It really pissed me off at school when I was forced to look like Hitler and I get pissed off again when my son who is now 15 and 10 has to cut their hair. Good luck and hope you have success in your efforts, as my generation was too pathetic to make a stand!”

  5. We bein’ opressed by big evil whitey. Dey tryin’ to keep us playas down. Lang hare ftw

    En 2 seuns in my klas was vandag nog forseer om hulle hare in skooltyd te laat sny. Hulle lyk kak. Ons sal by ons comrades staan, so violent revolution it is. The army motherfucker, the army.

  6. Kort hare maak heeltemal sin ingeval ‘n zombie uhuru uitbreek. Hoe korter jou hare, hoe kleiner die kans dat jy gegryp kan word.

    Ter interessantheid: die rede vir kort hare is militaristies, dis sodat jou vyand jou nie kan gryp, jou kop terug kan trek en jou nek oop kan sny nie. Maak vir my heeltemal sin.

  7. Die reels is blerriewil belaglik. Ek kan uniforms nog tot ‘n mate verstaan – dit maak geen inbreuk op jou reg om te lyk soos jy wil lyk wanneer jy nie by die skool is nie, maar deur jou hare se lengte te bepaal maak hulle inbreuk op jou persoonlike lewe.

    Wat van tatoeermerke? Ek neem aan dat dit nie toegelaat sal word nie. Aan die ander kant – wat kan hulle doen as jy een het?

  8. Ons SA kinders moet bietjie “by” kom in die lewe! Hier in die Britse skole is hulle streng, kinders se hare MOET netjies wees, in sommige skole, soos my seuntjie s’n, MOET dit gesny sodat hy nie die kraag raak nie. Geen kaalkoppe word toegelaat nie…in sommige skole (lw…enkeles alleenlik) word hulle wel toegelaat om hare langer te dra, maar dan is die gedrag UITERS swak in daardie skole. Dus, dissipline/netheid gaan tog gepaard, dan nie? ‘n Slonserige persoon is ook slonserig op sy werk! Laat hulle weet hulle moet bietjie groot word! Ai (sug!)

  9. Look at the following;

    South African Schools Act 84 of 1996
    G.N. 776 of 1998 published in Government Gazette No. 18900 dated 15 May 1998
    A CODE

    Look at Point:

    4.5.1 Freedom of expression is more than freedom of speech.
    The freedom of expression includes the right to seek, hear, read and wear.
    The freedom of expression is extended to forms of
    outward expression as seen in clothing selection and hairstyles.

    The Schools Act states that you can express yourself by chosing your own hairstyle.
