Mass caning of boys at teacher's desk

From 2009 or earlier comes this three-minute discontinuous film of a mass caning of some 18 secondary boys aged perhaps 15. The teacher is working from a list, calling each recipient to the front of the class in turn. Each student puts his hands on the teacher's desk. The teacher lifts up the tail of the untucked white shirt with his left hand and, with his right hand, administers punishment to the seat of the trousers. Most receive three brisk strokes.

    This looks like a fairly routine, matter-of-fact operation. The boys appear to be quite accustomed to it. The strokes are not very vigorous, though some students seem to get it a bit harder than others. There is much clutching or rubbing of buttocks, possibly exaggerated for comic effect in some cases. The atmosphere in the classroom is noisy and at times jocular, though the elderly teacher stays deadpan. The cane looks too rigid to be a proper rattan. The picture quality is not brilliant.
