Smacking as formal punishmentJune 28 2012 at 3:32 PM

I recall a girl I knew telling me how once she had seen a head teacher at her primary school spank three boys for some crime in front of the entire school.
I was not old enough to make detailed inquiries of her but her version of events was that they were all called up onto the stage at assembly, put across his knee and spanked firmly about 10 times each.
Has anyone else come across 'formal' smack bottom sessions, with swats counted etc in a school context or was a smacked bum an informal event (for instance a matron administered punishment at bedtime).
Or were formal punishments only ever given with slipper or cane (or some other implement)?
