This is a question School Assemblies

Our school assemblies were often presided over by the local vicar, who once warned us of the dreadful dangers of mixing with "Rods and Mockers". One of the cool teachers laughed. Tell us about mad headteachers and assemblies gone wrong.

Inspired by the mighty @Rhodri on Twitter

Guns and ammo
I was at primary school in the early to mid 80s, pre-Dunblane and (it seems) in a slightly more relaxed era of health and safety legislation. That must be how the deputy head got away with bringing a real handgun into assembly and firing blanks through a piece of card to show us that yes, even blanks in guns throw out detritus and are therefore dangerous too. It's a very important lesson to teach primary school kids. He also once set fire to a load of gunpowder in assembly to show that if it wasn't in an enclosed space, it just burns but it doesn't explode. See, I still remember this stuff. Job done.

Saw the same gunpowder demo at our town's mediaeval weekend, this year.
Interesting stuff, and you can do a similar thing at home, by performing the coke/mentors stunt with the coke decanted into a bowl.
