The school's principal Colin Martin responded by saying the event helped children engage with the outdoors and learn about humane ways of killing possums.That it was really about "letting kids be kids".
Since when does letting kids be kids involve letting them run around with guns shooting animals and making a contest out of throwing their corpses around?
Stop the Possum Throwing Contest and teach children compassion for animals.
