The Fire Station

Yesterday Pukeokahu school went to the Fire station. Jess (the fire instructor) said that when there is a fire to ‘Get down, get low, get out fast and stay out’.

We went  through an inflatable maze. You couldn’t see anything in there without a torch. We practised getting down below the smoke to escape.

We also went on the Fire truck. There were a lot of cool gadgets on the side. Rickon loved it. We got little fire escape plan booklets. 

Next we went to the Chrystal Bar and Moawhango School shouted us lunch. Luca and Keeva shared a lamington and a pie. Thank you Moawhango School.

We had a great day thank you Jess and Taihape Fire Station.

John Brandt

The school visited the grave of John Brandt to honour the memory of an ex Pukeokahu farmer who was at Le Quesnoy (one of the last battles in WW1). We laid a poppy and a flax cross.

Otupae Fund Raiser

We were given the opportunity to cater for an event hosted at Otupae Station. Many thanks to Gary and Mary Mead for the chance to fund raise and to the community for the amazing baking (the home made bread was a definite hit), pies and hot soup.

Tangiwai

We went to Tangiwai. We learnt about lahars. We had to make sediment and put it on a wooden board to see if it would run down like a lahar. The teacher that was teaching us about the lahar was called Marlene.
