For one it was an abomination, the other looks back on the school days with great pleasure. One thing is certain: we have almost all experienced it and have our own memories of it. The Hague Museum of Photography presents the exhibition School – In Love, Bored, Overslept.

From photos in class to school parties and while doing homework: in the modern building on the Stadhouderskade you get instant flashbacks to your own school days. “The exhibition is a kind of re-experience or experience – depending on how old you are – of your school day.”

Handing out cigarettes

You will find photos from inside and outside the school. “For example, of a child who does not want to let go of his mother. Or a girl waiting for friends to cycle to school together,” says Annemarie van den Eijkel, communications officer at the museum.

It also becomes clear how education has changed. “Whereas a teacher used to really be in front of the class, a teacher is now much more in the classroom. And grabbing a pupil by the ear to address him, that no longer happens.” Of course the exam parties and the secret distribution of cigarettes should not be missed.

They are not just random pictures. Compiler Dirk Kome, a photographer himself, heard criticism about education in the media, while he himself looks back on his school days with great pleasure. “That made Dirk curious. He started searching archives and collections for photos of education and could hardly stop.”

In the Photo Museum you will find photos by Carel van Hees, among others. “For an annual photo assignment from the Rijksmuseum, he photographed schools in Rotterdam, where many cultures come together.” Raimond Wouda photographed in the early years 00 for his series School pupils at schools everywhere in the Netherlands. “Wouda used a remote control to capture the moment. He chose the places where students spend time together between classes.”


As a photographer, Dirk himself could not stay behind. For a year he followed and photographed a HAVO class at his old school. The rest of the images come from photo collections and archives throughout the Netherlands. “Photos that then served as images for a news report, now give an image of the time.”

Annemarie regularly hears that people get flashbacks to their own school days during a visit. “The exhibition is very nice to visit with someone. Because you can have whole conversations about your own or each other’s school days based on what you see. Memories suddenly become active again.”

Would you like to do more besides catching up with your museum partner about your school days? In Fotomuseum Den Haag you can book guided tours. “All the background information makes you look at the images in a different way.” If you book quickly, you can get a tour from the compiler Dirk. “He knows so much about this exhibition. There is an hour for it, but you can easily make it an hour and a half.”

Those who want more depth can go to two lectures. Merel van Vroonhoven worked in business but switched to education. In addition to teaching special education, she writes about the importance of good education. She will give a lecture on 4 June in the Hague Museum of Photography.

Jacques Dane works at the Education Museum in Dordrecht and gives a lecture on 25 June about 2023the history of the class photo. “Speaking of which, we have a lot of it.” The museum called for class photos. “There is an overview of 150 years of class photos. We managed to find a photo from every year. That is very cool to see.”

No job, no diploma, sky-high debts and depressed. CJ (24) didn’t know what to do anymore. His mother urged him to seek help. That is how he ended up at Learn2Work: a learn-work trajectory for young people from 18 to 27 year. “I saw no way out and thought no one could help me. But now I’m looking forward to the future again.”

From homeless to home

CJ had 30.000 euro debt. “I lived day by day and didn’t care about anything. I dropped out of school while I still had to pay for my education. And I had fines,” he says. Project leader Daniëlle Lanzaat of Learn2Work helped CJ get his life back on track. “He is the example of what I love most about my work,” she says. “From homeless to home. From no income to benefits and now a job.” CJ is also relieved. “I have a purpose in my life. I matter again.”

Help from the Oranje Fonds

Learn2Work helps young people again return to school or work. “But we couldn’t really help young people with huge debts,” says Daniëlle. “While we wanted to.” The Oranje Fonds program Meedoen, Samen uit de Poverty proved to be the solution. This gave them room to strengthen their approach. They came into contact with the Youth Perspective Fund (JPF) in The Hague. “An innovative approach for young people who cannot develop properly due to debt. It appealed to us that it is not their fault, but their future perspective that is central. When CJ came to us, we were just getting started.”

Different self-image

CJ and Daniëlle worked on his plans for the future. With the help of a debt collector. CJ also completed social service at the municipality to pay off his debts. “I wanted to live on my own and grow up. But I admit I wanted to quit a few times. Mentally I was broken”, says CJ honestly. “That was the first thing we started working on.” He participated in all kinds of training. “For a long time I thought I was stupid. The training gave me a different self-image. I am very grateful for that. I became more and more motivated. Sometimes I was even there when I didn’t have to be there.” After seven months he was eligible for a home. A few months later his debts were forgiven.

Learning from expertise

CJ has a lot of contact with the other young people. “Now that I am doing well, I myself encourage others. I like to tell them where I come from and how I was helped, to motivate them.” Soon he will tell his story at schools as a guest speaker. Danielle thinks it’s fantastic. “It would not have been possible without the Oranje Fonds. Our organization has made huge strides. It is not only the money, but above all the expertise. Thanks to the guidance, you step out of the issues of the day and zoom in on your own project. You learn from the coaches and the other participants. I have become a different person myself. I do things differently. I think that is very beautiful.”

A very proud mother

CJ looks forward to the future. “When I used to look for work, I was often rejected because I had no work experience. How could I gain experience if no one gave me a chance? I really felt like I couldn’t do anything. That’s why I eventually start my own handyman company where I can give young people a chance at work. I’m going for it and I know I can do it.” And his mother? “She is really proud of me!”

About the Oranje Fonds

The Oranje Fonds believes that everyone matters. That is why the fund is committed to a society in which everyone can participate and no one is alone. In other words, an engaged society; in which we care for each other, people have equal opportunities and feel connected to others in the neighbourhood. Together with social initiators, these are people who see a problem and do something about it. They are committed to people affected by poverty, exclusion, loneliness and psychological vulnerability. They are there for others, so the Oranje Fonds is there for them. To strengthen and connect them.

So that everyone can matter to someone else. Discover how you can make a difference at
