Morning routine. We are woken by a bell at 7am and we have to be ready for breakfast at 7.45. Our uniform is checked on the way into breakfast and any faults will be punished. Our uniform consists of a fitted white blouse, maroon and black striped tie, black pleated skirt that comes to mid -thigh and a maroon fitted blazer. As the new girls we have to wear knee-length white socks and black buckle up shoes with a 1 inch heel. The older girls’ uniform replaces the white socks with long black over the knee socks and then black or white stockings. The heel height increases too. Our underwear is a white padded bra, cotton for new girls but older girls are allowed a choice of lace or satin. Robyn has been in trouble every day for refusing to wear her bra. Finally panties, two pairs, well sort of, first a tight nude-coloured thong that tucks our boy bits away between our legs and then a pair of white cotton panties with a ruffled lacy trim round each leg. They also have the day on them. the lace edging rubs against us as we walk which is a surprisingly nice sensation. The punishments are administered before we eat and consist of spankings. I think some girls enjoy standing before the whole school, bent over the chair, and getting spanked as they make mistakes every morning.
