Fernhill nursery pupils are top of the cops after police visit
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.”
