In Old Noarlunga SA on “Outdoor firing range and...” at 1559 Piggott Range Road, Old Noarlunga SA 5168:

Anonymous Teacher commented

I work at the Old Noarlunga Primary School and would like to remain anonymous. The word of this becoming a possibility has begun to spread throughout the children of the school. While some kids think it's cool and exciting, there are many which are genuinely fearful of the idea. With how close the location is to the residential area and the way sound travels through the valley, these children will be faced with the unnecessary noise of gunshots on a daily basis. Being a long ranged range there are kids terrified that a bullet could reach the school and injure themselves or one of their friends.

I want to clarify that I personally have no issue with the sport, however, there are so many locations moving further south that would be much better suited for this activity, out of earshot and physical distance from any residential areas and schools. I have no doubt that anyone wishing to practice in the sport would not mind travelling a little extra distance to keep our future minds at ease.

Thank you for your consideration.
