Today, Central Kids Morrinsville had a visit from our local Police Officer, Vic Sneddon. He came to talk to us about the role the Police play in our community.
He talked to us about how the Police can be recognised by their uniform and their Police car. He showed us some of the equipment he uses and some of the children were able to try on his very heavy protective vest.
The children heard how the Police provide help when we need it, such as, if we are lost or hurt. Officer Sneddon also taught us a rhyme about how to keep ourselves safe near roads:
Safe hands, safe hands what do we do?
When I’m by the road, Mum I hold onto you
At the end of our talk, we all went outside to see the Police car flash its lights and listen to the very loud siren. Thank you Police Officer Sneddon for your visit.
