Toolooa Rifle Club

Toolooa Rifle Club
 
 
Jamaica may have a bobsled team but Toolooa High is even cooler because we have a rifle club. The club is fully supervised and, this year, we have invited all students over the age of twelve to join us.
 
Numbers are on the increase as more and more youngsters experience a sport that teaches them to appreciate the responsibility of using a rifle safely. Toolooa Rifle Club offers youngsters a chance to experience a fully supervised activity that previous generations took for granted.
 
The Toolooa Rifle Club is an extra-curricular activity undertaken in the teachers’ and students’ own time. Students undertake safety training prior to using a rifle and all activity is undertaken under the close instruction of the highly trained range officers, Mr Paul Cupitt and Mr Trevor Davis. Parents are very welcome to attend and participate.
 
On Saturday, 3rd May, 2014 there were a number of interested and keen students willing to participate and learn how to handle a .22 rifle carefully and last Saturday, the 7th June, 2014 there were even more eager participants. It all goes to show that safe activities can be educational and fun. Who knows we may be encouraging and training a future Olympic champion?
