Singapore — A secondary school student has complained on social media after being caned at school.

In an Instagram post on @sgfollowsall, the boy, who described himself as a “Sec 2 student from NSS”, said he was given three strokes of the cane for vaping and truancy.

The full name of the school was not given, but NSS could mean either Northland Secondary School or Northbrooks Secondary School.

One of the strokes of the cane accidentally him on the thigh. It hurt so much he didn’t know what to do. He couldn’t sit down, he added.

He had heard from his friends that the school should not have caned him like that, he wrote.

So he went online.

The purpose of his post was to verify if indeed he could be caned like that, he explained.

“My *ss got line and stings, can’t sit down,” he added.

The post, shared on Tuesday (Apr 20), garnered almost 9,000 likes in less than a day.

The boy received likes but little joy. Many who commented on the post felt that the boy’s punishment of three strokes was lenient considering what he had done. /TISG
