I'd been at St Martinas University for a month before I saw someone being punished. Detentions and lines and being sent out of lectures were common enough, of course, but canings were reserved for only the most serious infractions. When they were given they were delivered in front of the whole student body, during the morning assembly, to act as a deterrent to other rule breakers.
I'll admit that I'd been curious. I'd heard plenty of rumours from the other girls, of course, most of whom seemed to know someone who knew someone who had been caned. The stories were frightening, and I suspect exaggerated. Nancy Sullivan claimed that the heaviest punishment that could be given was one hundred lashes, and that it had only been handed out once before.
"And afterwards the girl couldn't sit down for a week. She had to sleep lying on her front, and stand up at the back of the room for lectures." Nancy's eyes were wide as she told me. She clearly believed every word.
