An 11-year-old girl brought a hand grenade to her class in an Australian school for a ‘show and tell’ activity on Wednesday, prompting evacuation of over 500 students and teachers.

Police were called to Hunter Christian School in Sydney after a teacher discovered the girl had brought a “pineapple” hand grenade, a model of weapon used in the World War-II and the Vietnam War.

Some 450 students and 60 teachers of the school were evacuated to a park near the school and allowed back after the police bomb unit declared the school safe.
