Punishment in the year 2000
Physical punishment is no longer used today. The emphasis is more on rewarding good behaviour, than punishing bad. Children who misbehave, are reprimanded by their class teacher or sent to see the headmaster. Another form of punishment used today, is to be sent to stand facing the wall. Many forms of reward for good behaviour are used at Beaudesert. There are cups and shields presented regularly, for children who show kindness and helpfulness. Team points are also given for hard work and achievements. Good attendance is also recognised, originally with medals and more recently with certificates.
