    The School Cane - So Many Ways To Get It

    I have shared some stories about the more serious canings I received in high school. Every one of them justly deserved since I tended to behave abominably sometimes. The fact that I also went to a very strict Catholic boys college in the 1960's / early 70's didn't help either...

    As a young schoolboy,

    I was caned by a female teacher. Well, the headmistress, actually. This happened while I was at junior school, in the late 1960s. It was my third year, so I would have been 10 years old. The head was universally known as "Jessie". I didn't usually see much of her, as she...

    Corporal Punishment

    It is very pleasing to see from the contributors that no one harbours any resentment for their canings.I was a Schoolmaster for over 45years. I spent 10 years as the Headmaster of a large boys boarding school prior to caning being banned in 1987. During those ten years it...

    My First School Caning

    When I was in the third year of secondary school I was picked on, bullied really, by two boys in the year above me who lived on the same way home as me. If they caught up with me as we were walking home they would push me about and hit me and take my cap and throw it over the...

    Caught Watching Others Caned

    At my prep school a lot of us liked to see other boys getting whacked, be it with the slipper or cane. It was especially good if you were not waiting to get it yourself. The best whackings to watch were the ones on the bare bottom where the victim had to take his pants down prior...

    Caned By Female Teacher.

    I was punished at school many times but probably only caned on 8 or 9 occasions, but the one that always sticks in my mind was not the hardest caning but the only one performed by a female teacher. Most of the teachers used corporal punishment to control their classes of about 30...
