This is a question School Assemblies

Our school assemblies were often presided over by the local vicar, who once warned us of the dreadful dangers of mixing with "Rods and Mockers". One of the cool teachers laughed. Tell us about mad headteachers and assemblies gone wrong.

Inspired by the mighty @Rhodri on Twitter

Secondhand this one, but at sixth form I did physics with a kid who had been at Bradfield College (near Reading) until his parents fell on hard times or something. Anyway, it was a fairly disciplined environment and the school troublemaker, one of the boarders, decided to make a point.

He gets one of the bed sheets and dyes it red, then carefully paints a white roundel and black swastika in the middle to make the sort of banner that Albert Speer would have been proud to see hanging from the Reichstag. This is then rolled up around a broom handle and, one night with the aid of the gym equipment, installed in a dim corner of the main hall, between the ceiling and the wall.

The school is having a big dinner with speeches and stuff when he pulls a rope and the banner unfurls right down the wall. Apparently everyone was speechless for about 30 seconds, then all the pupils started laughing and all the teachers went apeshit.

There was a witch-hunt and the perp was expelled, but it was probably worth it.

A terrible violation of the perp's human rights and freedom of speech.
It's PC gone mad.
