The current study was designed to assess the association between corporal punishment, students’
academic performance and wellbeing. A cross sectional survey was completed by 110 consecutive
students from grade 9th and 10th who agreed to participate in the current study. The students were
selected from one private and two public schools located in Gojal village in Hunza valley located in Gilgit
Baltistan region of Pakistan using responsive driven sampling technique. The findings of the study
showed a significant positive association between corporal punishment and academic performance.
However, the association was significantly negative between corporal punishment and psychological
wellbeing. Further analysis indicated a significant gender differences in corporal punishment where
males perceived to have faced more punishment as compared to females. On the basis of these findings, it
may be concluded that students who are given corporal punishment are at risk of developing mental
health issues. These findings may be relevant to mental health practitioners and school counselors to
modify existing impractical policies related to corporal punishment.
