Listening to punishment

Back in the early 1960s, I worked in an English primary school as its secretary. The headmistress, Miss Brown [name changed – Ed] was essentially my boss, and her office was directly off my own.

That being the case, all ‘traffic’ to the head’s office came through my own – including children who were in trouble. Corporal punishment was very much still an option, and I saw many a child emerge from my boss’s office in tears and rubbing their bum.
