THE pre-primary children have been learning about helping and being of service to others this term. Tying in with this theme, on Wednesday, October 11 the fire brigade came to visit the NHP and the Grade 1 to Grade 3 children. The educational officer informed the children about how the fire department operates and were taught about fire safety and equipment. They even got to spray the fire hose. They had a very informative morning and were enthralled by the fire truck.It is important for children to be educated and aware of the essential services provided by departments such as the fire department and for them to appreciate the work these services provide.
