Fire Brigade Day, Friday 16th November
November 12, 2012 § Leave a comment
Our “dress-up as a saint” activity was indeed memorable. All our mums are to be congratulated for the ingenuity and joy they brought to the day.
On Friday November 16th the Melbourne Fire Brigade will visit our homeschool group for an education session. They will also bring along the fire-truck from the Deer Park station & have very generously supplied materials, books, colouring pages etc., which will be handed out on the day.
This session will be geared to a very wide age-range so there will be something of interest to all ages. However one very important thing to note – The MFB have instructed us that ALL preschool-aged children need to be closely supervised by a parent throughout this visit (you will need to sit with your child/ren). It is not the MFBʼs usual policy to present education sessions to preschool-aged children, as this knowledge can sometimes be beyond their comprehension & without parental guidance can lead to an unhealthy curiosity about fire & fire-safety. They are making an exception for our homeschool group & we have assured them that all parents will co-operate with their request.
We hope you all enjoy the day. I can’t wait!
