Visiting the Fire Station

Early this term the children saw a house on fire up on the hill above the Kindergarten, and then the Fire Engine came to put out the fire. This cause a huge discussion at mat time, the children had lots of questions, answers, and ideas about fires. A trip to the fire station was one of the suggestion that came from them, so that is what we did!
The bus arrived early and took us to the Dunedin Fire Station to meet the brave people that fight fires for a job. It was a great day and we learnt many new things about fire and keeping ourselves safe all the time. Here is Lukin exploring the inside of a fire engine.It was a busy morning and we had lots of tired children on the bus home, but is was worth the trip!
