Shooting | Gippsland Grammar

Shooting

The clay target program at Gippsland Grammar is a popular activity. It is also highly disciplined and challenging, designed to educate students in the disciplines of Skeet, DTL and simulated clay target shooting. The program places major importance on educating students in safety and has a 5-1, student - licensed adult ratio, to maintain strict discipline. Students in Years 8-12 also have an opportunity to participate in an educational program (for a term only) to learn and sample the sport before applying to join the main team.

 

Members of the permanent team must have a junior firearms license to participate. Students travel by bus to the Longford Field and Game range or the RAAF Base East Sale clay target club, which are the two main venues for weekly Thursday sport. Both venues have highly skilled and qualified instructors to help students develop to the next level. The team travels to a variety of destinations such as Melbourne, Frankston and Bendigo gun clubs to compete in state wide competitions against the best private and public schools in Victoria and Tasmania. The School also competes in a number of highly competitive local clay target events at Bairnsdale, Morwell and Sale.
