What a wonderful tour we had today! The children in the infant class were so excited this morning and the Fire Station and Garda Station did not disappoint!!
Billy and Nora in the Fire Station gave us the most fabulous tour - they showed us all around the Station, explained about the equipment they use & made sure to give every child the opportunity to use the fire hose and sit inside the fire engine, where the fire fighters sit. The children learned lots and it was also great fun!
Then Claire, our bus driver, drove us to the Garda Station, where we had another lovely tour guide - Garda Deirdre - showing us around. We saw the interview room, holding cell, Doctor's room, fingerprinting area, surveillance room, Garda car (and sirens!!), handcuffs......... the list goes on!! We met the Garda who was answering the 999 calls today. It was so interesting............. the children were mesmerised with it all! (and so were the adults!!)
Then, we got back on the bus for our trip home............. we arrived back at the school gate just in time for our parents to collect at 2pm. The children were excellently behaved all day - they certainly deserve the goodie bags that were given to us at the Fire and Garda Stations. We will have a lovely time over the next few days talking about what we saw and heard on our tour today. A memorable day for all!!
