    Nobody but dp and I will ever physically punish my children!!!

    Even then a tap on the butt is the furthest it would go.

    I got hit in primary school by a teacher... Mum tore him a new one lol

    It's only in the boarding part, so day students never have to deal with it, and there was no permission form. It simply happens if deemed necessary. Who would pay? Those who live out bush with no schools, most are homeschooled in primary school then go there for high school. If they can't get in anywhere else what choice do they have? Luckily this kid can go to high school in his hometown although they only have about 10 kids there in years 8 to 12.

    Absolutely disgusting. If this happened to my son (same age & year) someone would have to restrain my DH and I. I'm surprised any parent would be ok with this.

    How any parent could choose to send their child to a School that hands out assault as a form of punishment is beyond me.

    How bl**dy disgusting.

    I would think that a school that boards is private, so there must be a public school that is available? Anything is better then sending your child to school with the slight chance they could be assaulted as a form of discipline.

    Sorry, but there is a choice.

    To parents who live in the bush, boarding school is the only option. Sorry, but not every town has a high school. Lucky for this boy, the town near him has one but since it only offers 5 subjects his parents felt boarding school was the best option. It wasn't until the end of term 1 that they became aware. They have pulled him out, put him in a school with very few subjects and are looking into legal options. The only way to attend public schools for those without one in their town is if they have people who can take them on during the term. No, there is not always a good range of options for everyone.

    What about school by the air or correspondence? Or homeschooling? Where there is a will there is a way.

    Most of them are for primary. Let's just bag the parents with limited options.
