I particularly like the poster in the picture... "Think before you act!"
As far as the stated purpose of this stunt goes, it was a ridiculous idea; there was absolutely no need to stage the shooting.
If they had intended it as an example to the school's would-be gangstaz, I could almost see the point. MayB them whats finx bein a gangsta is kool might fink twice b4 theyz plan on gettin some heat, like.
I can't believe a school would do such a thing like this and to such young pupils. In the year I have been working in a secondary school I have come to realise how sensative even the most mature YR11's can be and especially with the subject of death. Had I not known what was going on i'd have been just a shocked. I don't see what point they were trying to prove and by saying that the students were more upset because the teacher was "liked" is rubbish!
A few years ago, one of our Y5 teachers staged a mock robbery. She brought in a sailing trophy and went into great detail telling the kids it was her prize possession. Then, the Deputy Head rushed in, dressed as a silent movie robber. mask and stripped top. He picked up the trophy and rushed out. There were kids screaming, crying, a couple of lads gave chase and the teacher almost wet herself. But the funniest (nicest) thing was a 9 year old lad giving her a big hug and reassuring her that the police would catch him. The kids all recovered quickly and all shared in the joke but it made us realise how careful you need to be.
Back to this story, if a Science teacher can be sacked for using a sledge to teach, then what will happen in this case? The school in question is a few miles from us and in our LEA.
One of our teachers went to the school a couple of days ago for a meeting. Seems the HT has left. Can't imagine why?
