"If it is necessary to punish a child, he is always asked prior to this whether he understands the rules, and the reasons for them, and children are often given quite a number of warnings before any punishment is given. Very rarely is corporal punishment used, and it is only ever used after a thorough investigation into the case and only when misbehavior recurs. The only two things generally punished in this way are fighting and throwing stones. When corporal punishment is administered, this is carried out by either the principal or assistant principals".
