The Manawatu Standard recently reported an Army Team visit to Whakaronga School where they held a seminar for the kids about leadership and responsibility:
Of course the 'gentlemen of the press' focused their cameras on the *GUNS*
- but were surprisingly neutral and restrained in their reported opinions..
- There was no reportage in the newspapers of the day - back at the end of the 1950s - when I and my classmates were trained by the school Combined Cadet Force to handle and shoot safely with Lee Enfield's on the school rifle range.
- So I say .. Well Done to that school - I consider that the group of 9 to 13 year olds will benefit from the experience.
