Avon Valley Gazette - - EDUCATION MATTERS -

YEAR 3 stu­dents at Swan Val­ley Angli­can Com­mu­nity School have been dis­cussing the topic of com­mu­nity in their In­quiry sub­ject.

The classes ex­plored and ques­tioned what it meant to be part of a com­mu­nity.

Year 3 teacher Mrs Cymer said the team was ex­cited to or­gan­ise a visit from mem­bers of the El­len­brook Fire Sta­tion, where they demon­strated their equip­ment and talked about their role in the com­mu­nity and the type of work they en­counter.

Stu­dents used the fire hoses, ex­plored the trucks and dis­cussed a range of fire safety rou­tines.

“It was very pleas­ing to hear the range of ques­tions the stu­dents posed,” Mrs Cymer said.

“Im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion gained was that chil­dren need to know the 000 emer­gency num­ber, their ad­dress and cross road, full name, why they need help and not to hang up.

“Over­all, the visit went very well with great re­views from the staff, stu­dents and our guests.”
