Description

Corporal punishment registers were kept by the Head Teacher of each school, and record all corporal punishment administered by the Head Teacher or an assistant [authorised by the Minister]. The corporal punishment register of the Maidavale State School contains the following information for each entry: the date In full, the name of the pupil or pupils receiving corporal punishment, the fault or incident requiring punishment and the kind and extent of punishment.

Historical Note:
Corporal punishment was to be administered not for trivial breaches of school discipline but rather only as a last resort when the student had committed offences against morality, gross impertinence, and/or wilful and persistent disobedience. Girls over the age of twelve were not to receive corporal punishment.

Note:
The end date given in SRS6030/1/1 (6 November 1990) reflects the last date of action in the Corporal Punishment Register. The last date of punishment is the 14 April 1953.
