Fun with the NSW Fire Brigade!

Parkview Public School's Kindergarten classes enjoyed an informative and entertaining visit from Leeton's Emergency Services personnel last Thursday, a feature of the children's current unit on 'Our Place', teaching them the significant aspects of our community their school, town and the people who help us in our community including emergency personnel and community businesses.

Throughout the unit, the children have learned a range of concepts including road safety, child protection, people that help our township to function and significant icons of Leeton.

Thursday's visit from Fire, Police and Ambulance was a big hit with the children, providing a unique look at the vehicles used by emergency personnel whilst also allowing the students to know the friendly faces behind the uniforms of the students.

Kindergarten teacher Clare Duncan was excited to have the support of the local representatives. "It is fantastic for the children to complement their learning by meeting these people and to be able to ask questions and actually explore the vehicles used by the emergency services personnel. We are extremely lucky to have such dedicated community members willing to volunteer their time to educate our children."

The visits complemented presentations in class by other community members including an informative discussion on the history and uses of the iconic Roxy Theatre by Krystal Roden.
