Another Friday and another Detention Day! The same faces passed through the school doors once more, plus a new pupil who we hoped we could achieve something with. But by the end of the day all our hopes and aspirations were dashed! Yet another pupil who I am sure we will see again and again, requiring more and more punishment, given of course with a firm hand.
The lessons we had prepared were met with the same stupidity and lack of enthusiasm, even when they were asked to put something together for the Chapel School Anthem. Surprisingly, one of the long-standing boys came up with a really good effort! This is the same boy who always feigns deafness when something is asked of him! This was a surprise to both of us, as it is the usual old behaviour problems of these pathetic creatures that we have to deal with, helped by a firm hand! So we set to work on all of them, starting off with slippers and paddles, then moving on to straps and finally finishing off with some of them taking a flogging with Mistress Vanessa’s new and very effective whip, the results of which can be seen in some of the photographs. Of course, they were all soundly beaten with the cane as well!
And it has come to our notice that the only thing that they are excel in is eating school lunch!! We will however continue to make our mark on them in the future and on any other boy who may be sent to the Chapel Detention School!!
