Topic: Tawse


In the News (Tue 16 Sep 14)

  
  Tawse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A tawse ' (the plural of Scots taw, a thong of a whip) is a typically Scottish implement for physical punishment, called tawsing after it, that was often used for educational discipline instead of the English cane (which, like the horse crop, was however used in private schools, usually on bare bottoms or the hands).
Scottish schools used the tawse to beat pupils on the buttocks, legs or hands.
Tawse is also the name of a sept (genealogical branch) of the Scottish Clan Farquharson.

 the belt
The tawse may be applied to the palm of the hands or the buttocks.
The tawse is associated with Scotland, just as the cane is with England, and has been employed in domestic, educational and judicial contexts.
A final note on the tawse: In 1982 its monopoly manufacturer in Scotland, Lochgelly saddler John Dick, "whose family firm had been making the tawse in their Fife workshop since Victorian children were learning their three R's and being belted", went out of production.

 CORPORAL PUNISHMENT: CANE AND TAWSE IN SCOTTISH SCHOOLS
('Tawse' was the official term, but in conversation it was always called 'the belt'.) It was the only instrument permitted under the 1968 Code of Practice agreed between the Scottish teachers' unions and the Scottish Education Department.
Generally, however, the tawse in Scotland was given on the hands, often - contrary to the usual practice with the cane in England - in front of the class.
There is one significant exception to the dominance of the tawse in Scottish education, and that is the independent (private) schools.

With 30 acres of vines on site and 50 acres elsewhere, great chardonnay is the Tawse focus now, but the winery has 30-year-old riesling vines surrounding it, which produce an opulent 2003 Riesling ($22, rating 90) stuffed with sweet-edged nectarine-, tangerine- and apricot-laced flavours.

 School corporal punishment, UK, Oct 2002 - CORPUN ARCHIVE uks00210
The belt, the strap or the tawse first came into favour with Scottish teachers -- and parents -- in the 1880s and remained in use until corporal punishment was abolished in schools just over 100 years later.
The first Lochgelly Tawse were produced by coachbuilder Robert Philp, Lochgelly, and this name was stamped on the 30-inch leathers, made originally from harness leather.
Pre-1910, the Lochgelly Tawse had a slit in the top (teacher's) end for hanging the implement up with, but after that a round hole was punched in the leather for this purpose.
