865. Christchurch’s Christ’s College
Christchurch’s Christ’s College is located in Christchurch, New Zealand. Recently the media has exposed a system of fagging in use up to the mid-1980’s. Also mentioned is the use of corporal punishment and an investigation into sexual abuse in the early 2000’s.
Most of the corporal punishment was metered out by senior students with little or no supervision from the management.
It could not have been fun to be there in the old days as a teenager.
