New Detention Method
By: Claire Harrison
This is my second article, once again on punishments in schools. This time, I visited an all girls school, Solhill Grammar School, to investigate how the girls have been disciplined.
This school had the highest number of drop outs and criminal cases for the last three years whith the girls committing acts such as assault and kidnapping. After much debate and consultation with the local police and parents, a new disciplinary action was passed.
“Ironically, we came out with the idea because of what a gang of students did to a young girl,” discipline master Mr. Roman remarked. “This young girl was stripped of her clothing and wrapped in baby nappies. Therefore, we came up with an idea of forcing girls to wear diapers as part of their punishment.”
Humiliation was the key factor I was told. A student that was caught with the tiniest breaching of school rules or activities outside school would be immediate brought to the nurse, who was a incidentally a male. The student would then be strapped to an operating table and her underwear and hosiery (if she is wearing one) would be removed. Her crotch would be shaved carefully with a diaper taped in place. The worse the punishment, the thicker the diaper and the longer the time she had to have them on. To prevent students from removing them, locking knickers would be attached. For further humiliation, each girl would be injected with a serum that would render them incontinent for the period of punishment to ensure regular usage of the diaper. Should they require any change, they had to informed who would then unlock their diapers and give them a fresh one to wear.
“How effective has this been?” Roman grinned and passed me a folder detailing the number of school offences and criminal acts since it was implemented. From a high or 500 cases each month it had dropped to 4 cases every sixth months with no offences committed in one year. Examining the statistics for each year, only the Year 11 students showed a relatively high number of cases—300 during the first two years of implementation. “Even the police presented us an award for this idea,” he said, gesturing to a plaque on the wall.
“It’s a really good concept in place of detention,” remarked biology teacher Mr. Hansen. “The girls still attend classes but during physical education they are given push ups instead, adding to the punishment. And some of them perform better when diapered.” I polled a number of other teachers who provided similar comments.
Having been tied up last time, it was only natural for me to similarly experience this school punishment. Changing into the green jumper and uniform, Roman yanked me towards the nurses room where I noticed two other girls already strapped to the table. Holding me firm, I watched the male nurse whose tag read Hendrich snap on the diapers. One of the girls had her mouth taped shut and Roman remarked, “She’s a yappy one.”
It was my turn next. Leather straps cut into my wrists and ankles with a broad strap around my breasts. “Tape her too; she wants to experience it all.” Yeah right and the stickiness of medical tape reached my lips. I felt my underwear nearly ripped off and a stinging cream applied. Within five minutes, the shaving was over. My butt was lifted temporarily and thickness soon surrounded my crotch. A ruffling sound was heard and soon the plastic underwear was locking across the diaper.
“What if I need to defecate ?” I asked. “You can’t”, he replied.” Not until your next change.” “Oh wait,” he said and brought over a rack that contained syringe. “Five days” read one and he injected me with it.
Almost instantly, I felt my bladder empty into the thick pad below and gave a yelp. “Welcome to your punishment. The girls are outside; you may like to interview them.”
At first the two students were too shocked to say anything and just cried until I coaxed them. “My parents will punish me even more when I get home!” Jane, a Year eight student protested, punished for shoplifting. “I just handed in my essay five minutes after the dateline!” wailed Year Seven Leanne Summers. Walking back to their classes, we passed a few other girls whose sniggering was clearly heard.
Even when they head home, their parents are handed a key and a packet of diapers so that their punishment would carry on throughout the rest of the day. In my case, Roman passed me a key a a pack of diapers but indicating he would unlock me during school hours. “Do use up the diaper before changing, I can only provide you with so many extra changes.”
Jane was the most distraught from her punishment so I followed Leanne home in her parents car, he father immediately scolding her the moment she entered. “Were you shocked when you heard about the punishment?” I asked him and his wife, squirming in my seat due to the thickness. “Not at all,” both replied simultaneously. “Leanne was always mixing with the wrong crowd and her grades were horrible,” remarked his wife. “Our house was vandalized once by girls from her school. But since the punishment was instituted, the surrounding neightbourhood has be crime free,” he added.
I stayed on for a while and witnessed Leanne being spanked by her parents before they gave her a change. With the school skirt evidently missing, I loaned a towel from the family and headed to several other households for interviews gaining similar comments with the exception of one family. “You probably need a lift home,” Mr Summers said.
Back in Solhill Grammar the next day, a teacher mistook me for a student and yelled at me for wandering around. By ten a.m., my diaper was quite full and I found Roman with another diapered girl. “Your diaper isn’t full; get back to class!” he shouted. The student kept on begging but received no compassionate comments in return. “They’ve got to learn to wet it to the full—anything less and they might even get their punishment period extended.”, he said, unlocking me.
Another round of question covered preventive measures such as sickness and the possibility of rash or other infection. “Hardly any cases” was the answer. If a girl had her menses, that would be no excuse except that she would be allowed to change more often. For really serious cases, the maximum punishment would be six weeks and a caning in front of the whole school but that had not occurred for a while.
It was Physical Education class for one group and Roman suggested I be “punished” by doing push ups. It was certainly even more humiliating with my thickly covered butt moving up and down. Following that, I met up with the school principal, Mr. Winkle who similarly mistook me for a student.
“How long do you expect this to continue? Surely it won’t last forever?” I asked. “We’ve tried stopping it for one month and the girls were back to their mischief. So no, not until the thought is entrenched in their minds will we stop it.” I tried many other counter arugments, but his stance remained.
Across the next three days, I continued interviews with more students, teachers and even the police with all acknowledging the usefulness of the scheme. Finally, the end of my “entrapment” was over and it did feel weird pulling up my knickers.
It was a punishment I’ll never forget alright
