TEENAGE girls smashed up a high school classroom while hurling a tirade of abuse at teachers.
Ipswich Youth Court heard the two 14-year-olds destroyed student art work and daubed offensive slogans on the walls at Stoke High School.
And when police were called, they fought against arrest and carried on their foul-mouthed outburst.
Prosecutor John Hardwick said the girls, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had committed an "unpleasant offence."

They both admitted criminal damage and were constantly chided by magistrates for giggling throughout the hearing.
Mr Hardwick said the problems started when a fire bell led to the evacuation of the school on the morning of September 17.

The two girls climbed over a fence into Hillside Primary School. When they came back to school, they sat down just inside the entrance and refused to budge.
Mr Hardwick said when challenged about their behaviour, the girls responded with foul-mouthed abuse.
A teacher went to call police, but upon returning she found the girls had made their way into the art room where the trouble really began.
They started by spraying water at teachers, then daubed yellow paint around the walls and then began their wrecking spree.
A mirror which had once belonged to the teacher's grandmother was among the items destroyed in the rampage.
Mr Hardwick said the teacher had 17 years experience in the classroom, but had still been left "utterly dismayed" by the rampage.
Neither girl was represented in court. One offered no evidence on her own behalf, while the other showed no remorse for her crime.
She said: "It happened, they should just get over it. It's only school work isn't it?"
Magistrates imposed a referral order on one girl and ordered a pre-sentence report to be completed on the other after hearing she already had a referral order from an earlier offence.
