School Stages A Fake Shooting, Students Left Traumatized

In: WTF?

Times Online - Schoolchildren suffered panic attacks and were left crying after a role-play event in which one of their teachers was “shot dead” in the playground. The children, aged 10 to 13, were traumatised by the stunt, which was part of a science lesson, and were not told that it was a stunt for ten minutes.

The exercise at Blackminster Middle School in Evesham, Worcestershire, began when pupils heard that there was a gun in the school. Five minutes later the alarm bell sounded and more than 300 were sent outside and saw three teachers running across the field.

They saw a “gunman” in the distance and heard what sounded like gunfire before seeing Mr Kent, a religious education teacher, fall to the ground. Colleagues appeared to attempt to resuscitate him.

Parents claimed that the children were sent back to their classrooms and called into the assembly hall ten minutes later to see that Mr Kent was alive and uninjured. Some said that their children were so shaken by the exercise on Tuesday afternoon that they were sick in the toilets, suffered panic attacks and were still frightened when they got home.

Well I guess fire drills are getting too boring for the teachers these days. This sort of thing would be justified on April 1st, but I guess they couldn’t keep the idea in their pants long enough. What a ridiculous thing to do. If you’re going to give teachers this much leeway, one of them will eventually rape a little girl and claim it was a role-play exercise. It’s bound to happen.
