Things were different in the seventies, teachers got creative with punishments. The didn't pussyfoot around with lines or detention, they simply got physical with what was at hand.
I remember one pupil who had been clowning with some machinery in a woodwork class. The teacher had him bend over a bench and he whacked him with ten foot length of 3x1.
The worst I received for basically being as rubbish as Casper in Kes at football was to be the target for a penalty demonstration. The teacher had had a trial for Dundee United, I was confident he'd miss, but he booted the ball at me and bruised my leg.
I expect by the eighties the tide had turned and these instances would seldom happen.
Was anyone else subjected to or witness to creative punishment?
