Information Sources

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.


QS 149 Clause 113 of the Regulations (Issue of 1914) pasted in front cover of admission register.
Back to Top


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 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. These registers were kept by Septimus State School.
