    I'm thinking that your school will be one of the few that doesn't need money. Though I saw on Newsround today that there is now a school somewhere in England that has stopped giving out homework.

    Lucky me then eh? lol :p: We just have a punishment exercise system although that doesn't really have an impact on us cos we can write them out in no time in classes (though we arent meant to) and forge our parents signature.

    We had either lunch time or after school detentions depending on what you did. I remember one science teacher we had in yr 9, 2/3 times gave the whole class a after school detention, even though it was just a few misbehaving.

    Yeah but its a bit different from lines. We get a white punny for mild offences like talking excessively in class. The sheets are specially printed out before hand and all teachers have them and the teacher puts your name and class and reason for the punny being issued at the top in the spaces provided. Then there is an area for writing and you are given a seperate sheet which has a few paragraphs on behaviour and stuff on it.
    For serious offences, a yellow punny is issued. This is the same but has more writing and is obviously on a yellow sheet.
    And for very serious offences, you are given a pink punny which has even more writing, is pink and if you get one of these you are also referred to the head of the subjects principal teacher.

    I don't think giving out detentions is a good idea. You don't do much in them anyway.

    same as well...but i was kinda cheated by the school - half of the students who didnt get detention for a term got free tickets to a theme park through some raffle thing, no reward for the people who didnt get one all their school life!
