There was a girl from my year who, in her punkjaren came and her hair was blue paint. But in one of the articles of the school rules was that you have a decent hairstyle had to have it. So that blue hair could not and that the girl was suspended. So in those moments, I was always happy in the front of and the day after, all the pupils of her blue sprayed with a spray can. And the management screwed that measure back,” says Freek.
