Yes, Catholic Boys' school 1975-1987, Melbourne Australia. The strap - a length of leather (maybe a shaving strop?) folded over - wasn't that big of a deal. It stung for a few minutes but that's about it. There were worse beatings. I remember one kid getting punched in the face by an old Jesuit priest.
