    If I was the parents I would go to the police and file assault charges. A civil Court case may take ages... No quicker way to stop the practice than sending the cops around.

    I haven't read everything but I have just written an essay on this.

    There is no nationwide law banning corporal punishment in Australia but all states either have legal bans or provisions on using corporal punishment methods of discipline in state schools. NSW, Tas and Vic are the only states who have the same laws/provisions on private schools, otherwise the private schools can choose how to discipline as they see fit.
    Shocking but true.

    That's what we just discovered :/ but getting students to dish it out attheir discretion and using soap in moths that people use on their body in the shower sounds illegal still.

    There's something very, very insidious about getting the senior students to do it. I imagine that it could have a very negative effect on them as well.

    Yes, as bad as it is, it just makes it worse by the students doing it. Awful and sickening.

    Just to put it out there, I started this to let people know it happens in our schools still, so be aware of that. Not looking for a debate or judgement, just giving information that we came by the hard way. Hopefully others will be more aware and can ask more specific questions when enrolling kids into school. None of us would like to pick our kids up in that state.
