Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Nurs­ery pupils at Fern­hill School had a visit from Po­lice Scot­land as part of their com­mu­nity helpers topic.

The po­lice were able to help the chil­dren un­der­stand what they should do if they ever get lost and also al­lowed them to try on their hats, use their hand­cuffs, ba­tons and see the po­lice cars.

The chil­dren were es­pe­cially ex­cited when the po­lice sirens were sounded.

Mrs McIn­ness, lead prac­ti­tioner at Fern­hill School Nurs­ery, said:“Of­ten chil­dren are afraid of the po­lice and this visit helped them un­der­stand that they should see the po­lice as their friend and some­one who can help them should the need arise.

“Hav­ing talked about the work of the po­lice dur­ing our topic, this visit was a great op­por­tu­nity for the chil­dren to see first hand what they had pre­vi­ously learned through books, in­ter­net and TV and will un­doubt­edly help them re­tain what they have learned.”
