Onesie day at School

As part of our Inquiry topic, we wanted to give something back to our community. We decided that we would like to raise some money for The Wellington Free Ambulance service. They are one of our very important community helpers and their service is still free for everybody in the Wellington area.
We organised a onesie/pyjama day at school and everyone brought a gold coin to school. We raised over $500 on Friday. Yay!!!
Here we are in our pyjamas and by the big photo of an ambulance. We stuck all the coins onto this and then we will present it to our paramedic Alesha who came to visit us at school.

Paramedic Visit

On Friday, Levi's aunty Aleisha and her dad came to visit Rata.
She is a paramedic.
Paramedic's are superheroes because they save people's lives when they are very sick or hurt and need to go to hospital. 
We learnt that we need to learn to dial 111 and we need to know our address. 
Aleisha brought an ambulance to school and we got to walk through it and see what is inside an ambulance.
