Junior School had a visit from our local firefighters

Over a few sessions this semester, our excited Year 1 students have had the opportunity to learn about fire safety from local firefighters. The students met Firefighter Mel and Firefighter John, as well as some other firefighters, who helped students understand the importance of fire safety and what to do in the event of a fire.

In the last session on our school oval, the students were able to look at the fire truck and all its machinery. The curiosity took over with dozens of questions coming in from excited students. Where does the water come from? Why does water stop fire? Who drives the truck? How many fire trucks go to a fire?
A highlight was hearing the sirens and watching a demonstration of the firefighters using the hose.
