    Default School Detentions

    What would get you an After School Detention as opposed to a normal 1

    I always wanted to have one, but I was too much of a goody (crafty) 2 shoes. Though we also had an Headmaster's detention at my 2nd Secondary School - where you were "privalaged" (NOTLY indeed) to join him in a Classroom ... which others dreaded heavily!! Though i'd sure not of minded finding out what an "After-Schooler" as they were known was like as opposed to a normal one

    I got after-school detention once, as part of a whole class detention. Somebody gobbed on the wall in P.E. and they wouldn't let us go until somebody owned up to it. Nobody did so we were all sat there for an hour.

    I was warned with detention once for running along the corridor and squirting people with the squirty water bottles in science.

    All our detentions were after school, so I don't really know what a 'normal' one is.

    Nobody ever did own up so it remained a mystery. I think the longer we sat the more awkward it got for whoever did it. They probably didn't dare own up incase they got beaten up when we finally got out! I hasten to add it wasn't me!

    I had a few detentions, the worst was for beating someone up to the point of him passing out. That was a 2 hour sessions doing extra work for a week after school. The other guy got temporary expulsion for starting a fight with someone in the year below.

    I got an Isolation (sat alone in a room to do work) for mishandling chemicals in chemistry and starting a minor fire.

    I lost numerous break times from being late/being rude/not doing homework/disobedience.

    Possibly the worst punishment I've ever had was dealt out by a Religious Studies teacher for disrespecting of a minor religion. I was given a book of that blue graph paper and was made to put a dot in every single square. It took me about a month of sitting hours a night dotting each cell. The fact that it was my religion I poked fun at (which she knew of) and is one of the significant lesser ones was an irony totally lost on her.
