My first school was a pre preparatory school in
Later on at various different schools I was caned, smacked on the back of the legs, slippered with a plimsoll, hit on the hand with a ruler by both male and female teachers most of whose names I can recall. I can clearly remember a long line of boys and girls, of which I was one, and a rather demented looking spinster going down the line and whacking each bare calf as hard as she possibly could. Our crime, we carried on running after the playground whistle had gone. Ah happy days.
