Oakham Fire Station Visit Lower School.
Lower School pupils were very lucky to have a very special visit from 4 firefighters from Oakham Station. They used their training, experience and expertise to deliver fire safety messages in a sensitive and reassuring way so that the pupils understand the importance of home fire safety. They spoke to the pupils about fire alarm health and testing, what to do in the event of a fire and taught them to ‘Stop, Drop & Roll’. They also arrived in a fire engine (much to the delight of the pupils) which they showed the pupils around and they had a good look at various different parts of the truck and its equipment.
The pupils really enjoyed the visit and have had an insight into the local community of our school. The visit had a very positive impact on pupils and they learnt a lot from it.
