Norfolk, UK -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/22/2016 -- One school in Eastbourne, east Sussex has recently taken a very brave step – with head teacher Mike Fairclough deciding to teach the school's students how to face dangerous situations and objects in order to provide them with a confidence boost and life skills that they could possibly need in the future. This is something which Ofsted loves.

Children at said state school now take lessons in using saws, sharp knives and air rifles and are even taught how to cook over an open fire. This is said to provide the students with a real sense of achievement while supplying them with skills that they could possibly need later on in life.

Students at the school are required to learn how to use an air rifles safely and correctly, and taught how to hunt. They have to go out in all weather conditions to take these lessons too. A few people have complained, under the impression that handling air rifles is unsafe but many agree that learning how to use them correctly this early on in life could assist in the pupils avoiding any potential injuries and mistakes in the future.

A spokesperson from a leading supplier of air pistols was incredibly keen to comment saying, "We think that it is amazing that these children are being taught these skills and anticipate that going forward many other schools are going to follow in their footsteps. For parents out there whose children do not get taught these skills at school, we offer a range of guns suitable for them to be taught at home – allowing all to gain the much needed skills."
