British-style formal school caning in Singapore

June 20 2010 at 6:31 AM
KK 

 
According to http://www.corpun.com/rules2.htm

British-style formal caning (for male students only) is fully lawful in Singapore schools and strongly supported by the government. The great majority of the country's 150+ secondary schools use the cane, and at most of them it is a significant element in the disciplinary system.

Type of cane June 18 2010, 11:45 PM

Hi Andrew, can I know what is the length & thickness of the cane is used on you? In Singapore, the cane used is 1 meter, 10 mm thick, 1 stroke of it already very very painful! Here max allowed is also 6 strokes, but the schools mostly only gives out 2-3 strokes on the bottom bending over a table, with pants & underwear on.

________________________________

Current Singapore practice and ferocity seems very close to what was common at my high school in New Zealand in the 1950s and 60s except canings were never administered in the present of girls.

Canings of four and six strokes were relatively common for what were, by todays standards, minor offences (fighting, smoking tobacco, impertinence, possession of beer, etc.) Cane marks lasted many days. There were no suspension or expulsion as far as I am aware during my 5 years.

Singapore canings seem to be rather more severe than is current practice in private schools in Victoria, Australia.

Winston, please describe the welting and marking of the cane. Do boys behave better after caning or do some keep getting caned?

Oh,it will leave a red bruise across the bottom for every stroke given,girls here are not allowed to be caned[unfair],most offenders become better behave,only 1-2 of them repeated their offences....

Winstone what year are you at school??

Have you yourself had the cane? Would you example a caning in singapore schools..

What you were caned for, how many strokes you got and how were you positioned? Over a chair? Touch toes?

Much wait time say caned on the time of the offence or wait till...??

How did/do you cope after being caned??

I am 17 this year,got 2 strokes just before the mid year holidays for getting 20 demerit points,the offences are minor ones add on together,caning position is the same as the one in Copun.

Hi
I take it that demerits are for say minor things say talking in class, or late to class??? So is it always pay up at 20 and is that always 2 strokes to clear the slate?

I note your reference to corpun for position the samples I have seen show guys more standing than say bent over! I expect though that you are left with marks afterwards?

Yes,we are in standing position,bend slightly,so that the bottom,protrude out as a target,a cushion is tucked on the waist,to prevent injuries to the kidneys,on sure there are 2 thick,raised welts after it.

Is caning quite common in your school? You mention 20 demerits I expect earned over the term. So would I be correct to assume that if you had not got 20 they would have been wiped at the close of term and you would start at zero next term?

What are the most strokes that you have had and what for?

At you school you get caned for behaviour that is not acceptable. You mentio demerit points.

1 How many demerit points get you the cane?
2. If 20 dermerits is that 2 of the cane?
3. What happens if at the end of term you have 18 demerit points?

Re: British-style formal school caning in Singapore

June 22 2010, 12:20 PM 

20 pts=2 strokes in office,2 nd time 20 pts=3 strokes in class,3 rd time 20 pts,3-6 strokes on the stage[public caning],18 pts[whole year],no caning.

You reached the 20 demerits so got 2 strokes.

If at the end of this term you have another 6 demerits what happens?
1 Do they get cleared at the end of term, no caning!
2. OR Do they carry over into next term?
3. If you get 20 demerits next term, is that seen as your second time so 3 strokes in class for you??
4. How many demerits do you now have?

The way you are saying this it seems that getting caned in your school is fairly common.
1. How many times have you had the cane at High school?
2. How many times have you been caned this year?
3. How many of you classmates have been caned this year?
4. How many of those classmates have been caned more than once this year?

Hi Winston,

With the demerit system it must be quite an unnerving prospect for you knowing that you will most likely be facing another school caning and to be given in front of all your school friends as well.
But i quess life goes on and if it happens so be it. I expect your friends will not be too disappointed to see you bending over again as long as they are not the next in line.
Still a very painfull experience although quickly over with at the time and if you reach the 20 mark point i suspose it will be deserved although you might not agree on that reasoning.
Still must be quite an ordeal to be bending over in front of your friends and getting the cane accross your bottom, seeing the look on their faces as you await that first stroke. ouch!
Is it done over your trousers, must be tempting to put on extra pair of underpants.

Re: British-style formal school caning in Singapore

June 25 2010, 11:56 PM 

Wearing extra shorts is not a good idea,it is too warm here,anyway,we don't know the exact date of the caning,so wearing extra shorts,is very uncomfortable,i have heard my classmate,our discipine master,'feels' the buttocks before giving the cane,so that no offenders are wearing extra underwear,& make sure every stroke/s he gave really works[great pain]!

Re: British-style formal school caning in Singapore

They have no fix day for caning offenders,once the form teacher told you got 20 pts,you will wait,for the the discipine master arrived with a cane in his hand,then you know it is 'suffer' time.

Re: British-style formal school caning in Singapore

June 26 2010, 7:39 PM 


So having been told you have reached the dreaded 20 points mark it must be pretty scary and apprehensive waiting for the school master to arrive with his cane to give you your required number of strokes especially if it not on that day. Is there sometimes more than boy to be caned? if so does it help to know you are not the only one waiting to be caned. I expect the strokes you will get will be pretty hard ones over your trousers so as you say it will be suffer time

Well Winston, cheating in your exams, that is pretty bad of you. to my mind that should have earned you an immediate caning, as well as adding points on to your demerit list. Least when you get to the 20 point mark, which am sure you will, it will be well deserved. Do you agree? What do you think? Sounds a bit like you are the bad lad in your class if only you have been caned.

Caning in Singapore

July 8 2010, 9:41 PM 

My school is even stricter than Winston's. If we get to 15 demerit points it is 3 strokes and the points are handed out for almost nothing. I am 17 and have got it twice this year and I am sitting on 9 points right now. One more visit to the DM's office is almost certain, I am afraid.

Re: British-style formal school caning in Singapore

July 9 2010, 2:14 PM 

Within 24 hours of reaching 20 DPs you get a note telling you to attend a caning session in the DM's office at the end of the school day. At our school it is done in private and you have to bend over a desk with your spine protected by a book. The whacks are given with great force and its hard to stay still during them.

Dps are given for fairly minor offences and so we dont normally get more strokes for a 2nd or 3rd but for more serious offence we could get more or suspension or both.

Sorry but I dont know why I put 20, I must have been thinking of the other posts. The private schools are usually stricter and at at mine you get it for 15. Its 3 pts for minor offences and 6 pts for something only a little more serious so its easy to get to 15. Im on 9 so I need to be careful.

We get 3 DPs for most of the things you mention but last week I forgot to turn my phone off and it rang during a lesson which got me 6 DPs. Earlier I had got 3 for forgeting PE kit. In May a few of us were out of our seats larking about while the master was out of the class and when he came back we all got 6 points which took me and another guy to 15 and the dreaded visit to the DM the next day. It was all a bit harsh I think.

Re: British-style formal school caning in Singapore

July 12 2010, 7:18 AM 

So on 9 dm ponts already and still 5 months to go, must feel a pretty daunting prospect wth still fve months left when if you collect just another 6 points will mean you beng caned again. If this is the case which seems very likely will you get more strokes the next time having already been caned in May?
Rather than your system of collectng points would you have preferrred to be caned straight away on the day that your mobile phone went off in class then having to waited and worry about the prospect of a caning later in the term which seems very likely to happen wth only another 6 ponts to collect.
In my day it would have meant a trip down to the headmasters office on the day the offense happened and quickly dealt with. Are there any other boys in your class having already been caned this year in a simular situation to you?

Re: British-style formal school caning in Singapore

Winston, Got the 3 points just before hols.

I was at school in London until I was 14 when we moved back to Singapore and found it difficult to adjust to the discipline at the new school. I quickly gathered DPs and got caned within 3 months and another 2 later in the year. Since then it has not got much better but although I am in trouble more than the average boy its not too unusual to get several canings a year. A classmate and friend hit 15 points today and will get his second of the year tomorrow.

Having had schooling in UK where the cane is not used you must find it difficult adjusting to the fact that you now get caned! How do you regard the two different cultures?

I see that from what you have said you earned 6DPs just after going back to school. I can understand how you feel that it is most likely that you will get caned again this term. Is it always 3 strokes never less?

This is going to be a difficult day as we know one (not 2) of our classmates will be caned at about 2.30 PM. We all know when we have reached 15 points but it is the next day before it goes through the system. The waiting is almost as bad as the punishment but at least you know to put on 2 pairs of boxers in the morning not that it helps much as we wear light white cotton trousers and theres not much protection from a very whippy rattan cane. Yes its always 3 except in Yr 1 when they only get 2 for the first time.

Confusion of similar names

Please note that KzK and KK are different posters.

KK started this thread but KzK has continued it.

I think trying to pad up for the cane is risky. If the extra clothing is detected you could get extra punishment.

Three strokes does not seem very severe compared with the old days when 4 or 6 strokes was rather common. Without seeing the cane marks it is hard to know.

I agree wih KK padding is not really advisable and in truth probably only helps physcologically rather than in reality with your level of pain.

You obviously feel your for your classmate or perhaps he is a friend and I agree the wait till 1430 will be rather distressing! I expect you will be as supportive for hims as you can be.

Re: British-style formal school caning in Singapore

Yes the waiting must be very scary and the apprehension beforehand must make it difficult to concentrate on your school work before the 2-30 appointment.
Will you have time to talk to your friend before he has to report for his punishment and maybe give him some encouragement or support as he faces up to his caning. Getting the cane can be quite an ordeal, as i remember only too well from my own schooldays. does he feel that it is deserved? either way i expect he is pretty nervous at this time.Be interesting to know what his feelings are before and after and of course it might be you on the receiving end again quite soon. Wonder if he will be showing off his marks to you afterwards, something we usually did.

I dont understand. Singapore school canings seem very similar to "British" as experienced by me a few decades ago except that they were rarely administered in public and never in front of girls at my school.

The only way to compare the force of the strokes may be to compare the cane marks.

This has been a very difficult week at school with lots of activity around the DM's office. At this time of year lots of boys are reaching their DPs threshold of 15 which have been accumulating through the year. On top of this there have been some instant canings following a purge on smoking in the streets around the school. This has led to lines of boys waiting outside the DM's room who could hear a familiar swishing sound on the other side of the door as they waited. Among those lined up were my best friend and my 14 yr old brother who each reached 15 points this week. I gave them every possible support and kept out of trouble myself at least for the time being.

As you get near the 15 point mark it must be like walking on a tightrope knowing that even one small slip up could take you to the dreaded 15 point mark.
Sounds like quite a few boys will have been suffering sore bottoms after a spate of canings. How is your best mate and your 14 year old brother after their canings? Have they showed you the marks if they have any? Did they each get the same, 3 strokes

Oh dear Winston, i know it must be tempting to wear some protection, but it really is cheating, afterall having collected those points for various misconduct you cannot say a caning is not deserved. Do the honest thing and face up to it like most boys have too afterall it is only 3 strokes i believe. If i was the DM and found you wearing any sort of protection the punishment would be doubled or given with your trousers down which would be fully deserved. When will you know for sure it is to be tomorrow? In my teens i survived a 6 stroke caning at school along with 4 other boys, so just accept you have done wrong and take your punishment.

Cannot care so much,just got my sister's push up girdle,it is very thick,also wore a pair of new brief,i promised my sister not to dirty her girdle which is very expensive,it is very tight & thick,so i think much less pain.

Oh yes,the girdle helps alot,furthermore today,my D.M. is on leave,caning is given by my principal,a lady,so she did not 'touched' my seat to check for extra underwear,still quite painful[i heard she is a tennis player],but much better than the caning by the D.M.,3 'faint' cane mark still can be seen.,thanks to the girdle...

You said your DM checked physically to see you had not padded that was why you previuosly said no to padding!! If he had been there he would have checked you and you would have paid the price!!
What do you think??

Oh yes,if he is around & is doing the caning,he will sure check the seat,make sure the offender wear only 1 underwear,but my principal is a woman ,so she never did that.

You did not know that the DM was away so the fact that your principal caned you was not know until the time of the event! Above you clearly shyed away from padding due to what the DM would do!
If caught I expect he may have added to the three you were due??

How come you suddenly decide to pad and from what you say significantly padd yourself??

Winston, you appear to have been quite a lucky boy so far, getting away with padding up prior to being caned. In a way a form of cheating and looking back to my schooldays had i been discovered doing that would certainly resulted in me getting more strokes of the cane which to be honest what you probably deserve.
Are your class mates aware of what you did and if so what are their views on your actions, maybe they think you have been clever or they might look upon you as a cheat who got off lightly or they might just be a bit resentfull, especially those who have taken their punishments correctly in the past. In truth a pretty wimpish thing to have done really but i suspose still time for your deceit to be found out. Really Winston your actions dont do you much credit!

I decided to wear thick underwear,because the caning is carried out next day,if the caning is carried out the same day,i would have to suffer more.

sorry for digging up an old thread.. but i find it a very laughable matter that someone will be staring at the possibility of 3 strokes of the cane and still can post about it in glee..

quote winston: "I think very soon,my turn to get the cane,today,broke a glass pane while playing football,most likly tomorrow will get 3 strokes,later will try to borrow my sister's 'push up girdle' wear it to school tomorrow,hopes D.M. won't find out so that less pain..."

this sounds like "YIPPEE i am going to get the cane soon!!! i broke a glass pane while playing football".


Another-lurker: thanks for bringing this up.. i would appreciate it if you could email me at my email above.. have some things to share with you..
