Bomb threats at schools

Post by happy tiger » Tue 05 Jun, 2018 3:35 pm

Just thought I'd ask

Is this becoming a big thing at the moment ??

Up here in Gladstone we have now had 4 bomb threats at 2 local high schools in the past 4 consecutive school days

Gladstone SHS had 3 in 3 days and now my sons school had one today .....

Bomb threats have been big for decades. We would have one or two a year.

We had a few when I was at school always students for one reason or another. My favourite being when me and a mate came back to school after skipping class to find the rest of the school on the oval while they search for the ‘bomb’.

Bomb threats would have been the least of my worries if I were a student at that school...

Gees, someone is taking the Origin loss a bit too seriously!
