An Era of Punishment - “Spare the rod and spoil the child”

Punishing children, using corporal punishment was regarded normal and accepted in many schools and institutions. (23 Aug14, Pg 6  Times of India ICSE ordinance against Corporal Punishment) The legacy of corporal punishment in our school goes back to the beginning of 19th century, (Reminiscences of my school days 1901 to 1906 by Joseph B Gomes ) when from pulling chins, tugging ears, thrashing with a cane and  belting was freely used in the name of discipline. Whether it was for academic lapses or for bad behaviour in class, one wonders what compelled our teachers to be so harsh and severe then. Could be a couple of reasons, the boys who came from different backgrounds, egos, temperaments, some with mischievous tendencies and adept in concealing their pranks needed to be tempered, restore order and sanity in class. The other reason could be prevailing belief that “Spare the rod and spoil the child” Some parents would even approve of such severe punishments to some of our teachers privately or in PTA meetings. “Do what you want but see that my son/ward is brought to his senses and he studies”

FACES OF STANISLAUS HEALTHCARE

Remembering “ Dr Joe Maumkel ” on his 7th death anniversary

The journey through memory lane in St Stanislaus’ High School would be incomplete if there is no mention of Joe Maumkel.  Kaippary Alphonso Maumkel came to work in the School at the young age at 17. The Spanish speaking Jesuit fathers found his name a tongue twister and named him Joe. Sir Joe was a simple man doing simple tasks of importance with a smile for the school for more than 60 years. His presence and his assistance was everywhere those days. Those were the special moments of elation when he brought those notes like “Tomorrow is a Holiday “
 
He will be always be remembered for bringing the world to us through Visual Instructions (VI), those documentaries and Thursday movies in the school hall. One can never forget that documentary film shown on USA that made us dream of that country when besides learning the physical and political features in Geography there never was any hope of ever visiting that country. The film on human body’s blood circulation and immune system, with the red blood corpuscles ferrying oxygen to different organs and parts of the body and the army of white blood corpuscles fighting the antibodies invading with diseases and infection. And those Thursday movies like “Moby Dick” of wanton whale killing.
  
He was fondly called Dr. Joe as he was in charge of the school Infirmary and attended our wounds, injuries and occasionally administering in his patent style of darting an injection.  The legacy of the SSESA Staff Healthcare belongs to Dr. Joe. The “Joe We Care” fundraiser has evolved into the present day Teachers Healthcare program.
