Affies School Boys Join Hair Protest

Afrikaans Hoër SeunskoolPRETORIA – Students at the Afrikaans Hoër Seunskool (Afrikaans Boys High School) joined the protest against hair regulations at schools. This is following the protest at nearby Pretoria Girls High about discrimination against African hair styles that had education authorities tearing their hair out over the last couple of days.

The bad hair day happened as learners congregated in front of the predominantly white, Afrikaans language school’s main gate and blocked access to the premises, demanding that their hairy qualms be heard.

The boys are outraged by the school’s hair policy, which seeks to ban all outrages hair styles, and claim that the school’s hair regulations discriminates against modern Western hair.

“The school’s hair policy stems from a time before the birth of Justin Bieber,” complained Bart Nel, a grade 11 pupil at Affies. “We live in the new, post-Bieber South Africa. We feel we are being oppressed.”

The boys told shocking stories about the humiliation they suffered when their hair were tested to make sure it fits in with the draconian regulations.

“Teachers would put their hands on the back of our necks,” cried Sias Reneke, in grade 8. “If they can’t fit four fingers between our collar and the hairline, we would be issued a long hair warning.”

Educators also allegedly often insult learners who don’t comply with their antiquated rules. “A teacher once told me I should comb my hair, and that I look like a mattress explosion,” sulked grade 10 student Japie Adam.

“One of the teachers claimed that my spiky hair could poke out his eye,” added Ernie Ellis. “It’s ridiculous. My spikes will bend.”

Students also told how they would use hair gel to keep their hair from falling into their eyes.

Modern Western hair styles, like the Mop Top, Messy Top, High Top and the Flamed-up Top are all outlawed by the school. The Mohawk, Faux-hawk, and the Spiky Do are also not permitted.

Gauteng MEC for education, Panyaza Lesufi, vowed that the department will look into the matter. “When it comes to hair it can be messy,” she said. “It won’t always be cut and dried.”

Here are some examples of illegal hair styles:

Manie enjoyed the privilege of Apartheid rule and never bothered to get a proper education. The regime change left him unskilled, unemployed and broke, so he settled for being a reporter. Now he’s only unskilled and broke.

  1. I can’t believe people are actually falling for this. Although this is meant to be funny I think the writer should reconsider using a big school’s name like that. It could easily ruin this school’s reputation.

  4. All of this is nonsense im sorry. We all went through school with the same rules and we survived. This helped us to become responsible adults that can adhere to rules and regulations at the work place. Kids today are senitive and can’t handle rules and regulations and expect everything to be bend to their exepectations. Good old days you did as you were told or got a “proper pakslae”.

  5. Seriously? Post-Bieber South Africa? You guys chose to go to a strict private school where there are traditions and quite long history upon which the school stands. Of course we should be tolerant for changes to happen for bad traditions, but the reason that we are living in a “post-Bieber” South Africa is certainly inappropriate and childish.

  10. Students who disagree with school’s policies are obviously at the wrong schools! Go to a school with lower standards! High standards are instituted to maintain standards – if you want lower standards throughout your life, I feel sorry for you! Currently ‘respect’ and ‘self respect’, ‘honesty’ and ‘self improvement’ seem to be words lost in a generation whose only ambition seems to be the latest I Phone, Play Station, or Gucci clothing!
