School out­ing ducks the fun

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

LON­DON: A head mis­tress was un­der fire for let­ting a class of 10-yearolds go on an out­ing to see ducks be­ing shot.

Chil­dren from a Cam­bridgeshire school saw the birds shot and scooped up by gun dogs.

Par­ent Ray Pool­man, 49, said his daugh­ter came home “dis­traught”. A let­ter to par­ents men­tioned the out­ing but said noth­ing about shoot­ing.

Head­mistress Shirley Sta­ple­ton said it was an “an­nual trip” which helps pupils make “in­formed de­ci­sions” about coun­try pur­suits. – Daily Mail
