DON’T SHOOT THE HEADMASTER!
Did you know that we have our own indoor shooting range here at Warminster? Mr Mortimer went along to Shooting Club this week to find out more.
Mr Holt, Head of Outdoor Pursuits organises an indoor air pistol shooting club every Wednesday afternoon which is open to Prep children. Following a 'shoot-off' at the end of last term, eight lucky and enthusiastic pupils were selected and attend the weekly club.
Competitive Mr Holt is eager to put together a shooting squad to enter modern pentathlons and compete against other schools. Mr Holt commented, “We are lucky to have this facility and to be able to offer an air pistol club at Warminster. Shooting is a competitive sport involving tests of proficiency, accuracy and speed using various types of guns. Our club teaches safety, concentration, discipline and a new skill in a very safe environment. We will also offer a similar club to older children after half term.”
Mr Mortimer doesn't believe his shooting skills have improved since his army days!
For more information about this club please contact Mr Holt.
