The roots to grow, the wings to fly...
Our children really enjoyed meeting the Fire Officers from Dorset and Wiltshire Fire Service today - all retained fire fighters who had given up their time to spend with our children. The Officers explained all about the equipment they use to carry out their work and the children all got the opportunity to sit in the cab. The bit they most enjoyed was fighting the imaginary fire though!
Afterwards they all had a lesson from Gareth, the Education Officer, learning all about fire safety in the home.
Thank you so much to the Dorset and Wiltshire Fire Service for coming out today - the children gained a lot from the visit and so did the staff! (It was lovely to see an ex pupil from Bradford Abbas on the team as well as an ex pupil from Abbey School!)
