An 11-year-old schoolboy was shot in the back of the head with a plastic pellet gun in a Bournemouth classroom.Ouch! Still, he wasn’t harmed.
Details of the shooting have only just come to light after concerned parents contacted the Daily Echo.Oh, why? Did the school not deal with the issue correctly?
The Echo understands both sets of parents have been to the school to discuss the events and are happy with the way it has been dealt with.Well, that’s that, then? Surely?
Ah. Silly me:
Views from outside the college gates
• Grandmother Pamela Povey from London said: “It’s terrible. I’m really shocked to hear about this.
“It could have had caused terrible damage if the victim had been shot in the eye.”
•Taxi driver Ray Smith, 63, who lives in Branksome, said: “It’s very worrying to think that something like this can happen inside a school.
“I’m surprised the boy concerned managed to get the toy gun into school.”
• Portuguese Rafael Goncalves, 29, and his wife Sonia, 35, who live in Charminster also expressed their horror.
Rafael said: “There should be a policy banning children from bringing items like toy guns into schools.”*sigh*
