Running at Cross Country


We came to school and got ready to go to Highfield Park because it was St. Dominics Cross Country Day. We walked to the park and we sat on the grass with our coloured teams. Our teams sang its song very loudly. We watched the Year 1 & 2 children run around the oval. Then it was time for the Preps to run around the oval.


We stood in a line and Mrs. Owies beeped the horn and off we ran as fast as we could.

Stretch and the Paramedics came to our school.


The paramedics came to school, they read us a story about Stretch. In the story Stretch was playing on the slide and  broke his arm badly. The teacher came and called 000 because they needed an ambulance. The ambulance came and took him to the hospital and the doctors fixed his arm.

You need to ring an ambulane when it is a big emergency not a tiny one.

We went outside and we saw the ambulance. We had a photo with Stretch and our paramedic unifor

ms on.

We got to look inside the ambulance. The really loud siren and big, bright flashing lights went on.

The paramedics came to school to teach us that they look after us.


The Firemen came to our school.


If you are in bed and there is a fire, you should get out of bed and drop to the ground. (Lachlan)

Keep low and crawl and GO! GO! GO! ( Charlie)

If you are in the kitchen just with kids and there is a fire you could call your Mama to come. ( Pearl)

When you are cooking you should have your mum to help you to cook safely. ( Alex K)

If you are having a camp fire in the bush, you should put some bricks around the fire to stop the fire from spreading. ( Charles)

If you have fire on your back you must lie on your back and roll from side to side. ( Luka L)

A special meeting place near your home could be the foot path or the letter box. ( Charles and Henry)

We have to know our mum’s or dad’s mobile phone number. ( Esther)

We have to remember our street number , street name and the suburb we live in. ( Cooper)

When there is an emergency you must ring 0 0 0. ( Zara )

You can only ring the firemen when there is a fire and not for no reason. (Katie)



Pancake Tuesday
