APART from a lunchbox with the South African Police Services’ (SAPS) emergency number on it, general safety hints applicable to preprimary learners were shared and they were entertained by police members with music.

This happened when SAPS members of provincial Corporate Communication in the Northern Cape, including two members of the provincial band, paid a visit to the Little Professor Pre-School in Belgravia in Kimberley on Wednesday (28/10).

Lt.Col Mashay Gamieldien, Lt. Sergio Kock and Sgt Leon Standaar had been visiting Little Professor for the past three years.

This time they were joined by WO Joseph Carlo to talk to the children about safety hints.

Other than talking to the 44 learners, the officers also took their fingerprints to complete their fingerprint certificates.

This forms part of their portfolios which are handed to their parents at the end of the year. Refilwe Brandt, a communication intern, also accompanied the officers to the school.

Carlo played the keyboard and Standaar the saxophone, and entertained the little ones with nursery rhymes, which they greatly enjoyed and sang along with.

These school visits form part of the Safer Schools Project, as the security of little ones is a priority to the police.

The principal, Jean Covery, expressed her gratitude and appreciation and requested the learners to render a musical item to the delight of the police members.
