Firefighters visit the school!!


On Friday the 27th of September, 2 firefighters from Hillswick came to visit our school.  Their names were Toby and Jeff.

They spoke  to us about how they help us and we saw their fire engine and some of the equipment that they use.

We liked the big cutters and the really loud sirens.  The fire engine was cool!!!

We even got to try on a jacket, helmet and gloves.  The nursery and big class came out to see them as well.

Miss Laurenson was allowed to use the walkie-talkie and she got Cassie to go outside and slide down the fireman’s pole.

We said thank you very much to Toby and Jeff for coming in to visit us.

Developing the Young Workforce

We have had lots of very interesting visitors to the school this week.  Claire Herridge and Jolene Johnson came in to speak to the pupils on Monday about what is involved in running a café.  The pupils were able to see the huge range of skills they are learning at school that they will need in the future.

On Thursday Dr Chevonne Angus came into the school to give pupils a description of her work at the NAFC and to tell pupils about the huge variety of courses and careers that the NAFC supports.

P4 – 7 are thinking about all the skills needed for work that they are learning at school and have started folders titled Developing the Young Workforce.
