How ever did they get away with this sort of thing?Apart from having the cane and the sole of a pump our science teacher used many techniques of punishment. One day when the class were not paying attention he called us to the front and told us all to form a semi circle and hold hands. The two kids on the end had to hold a piece of brass tubes with wires on. We were all wondering what was happening until the teacher started to wind up the handle which sent an electric shock through us kids. He took great delight as we all danced on the spot. I don’t think it lasted more than a second or two though.
Today they would be in Gaol.
