If you read the title, and you are now curled in a fetal position, crying for your mummy (or daddy), then you know what it means. But, if you are still sitting upright reading the rest of this post, then ... read on.
Clearly the girls in the picture are not kneeling down ... or flying their arms. But that was a common way to punish junior girls in my day. If you made the mistake of walking past the senior block when they were not in class, any one of them could pounce on you and send you on errands. Whether you complied or not, they could also decide that you had done something that deserved punishment.
Haven't you ever wondered where the senior students got all their ideas for punishing junior students from? I have, and I still don't know the answer, but I can guess that they were doing what was done to them. Like some silly rite of passage that still baffles me.
Can you think of other ways senior girls/boys punished the junior ones. Please share! Also, if you know who invented any of those secondary school punishments, I would certainly like to know.
