In a moment of idle reminiscence I was thinking back to my schooldays and how much things have changed. Discipline being one of them.
I wasnít a bad kid, but inevitably through 10 years of school I had a few scrapes with authority.
Given my age, these were times when teachers had the power to administer some pretty harsh punishments.
It would be interesting to know what type of things others experienced during their school years. If youíre prepared to share this please include your age.
Iíve been caned across the ends of my fingers (as early as age 7)
Slapped across back of hands, Backside, legs.
Paddled with Gym shoes.
Paddled with cricket bat (PE)
Paddled with 2x4 (Woodwork)
Hit on head with wooden board duster hurled across the classroom by our Latin teacher _ intended for someone else, but I didnít get an apology.
The infamous sideburn tweak.
Deliberate humiliation in front of the class.
..Oh happy days
