Northern NSW : Rescue Spring 2016
Schools visit Students from three Lake Macquarie primary schools made the most of their opportunity to find out more about the work of the Rescue Helicopter when they visited the Service’s Broadmeadow base on 29 June. As part of the Westpac National Schools Program, 120 students from Fassifern, Floraville and Valentine Public Schools took a closer look inside the aircraft and an ambulance and heard stories about various missions from the Rescue Helicopter’s pilots and crew. One of the best highlights of the tour included seeing the Service’s flight simulator in action. 7 year old Ella Russell from Nelson Bay sent the Rescue Helicopter a very special message we wanted to share... Ag college sows seed Tocal College has been a great supporter of the Rescue Helicopter for more than a decade. Not only a leader in agricultural and conservation land management, Tocal also champions social responsibility within its student body. Fundraising is encouraged and the students run pool comps, raffles, and social activities. ‘ We talk about safety and the rescue helicopters as part of our student inductions,’ said Tocal Deputy Principal, James Hooke. ‘ It’s about recognising the support and the history.’ Recent government statistics reveal agriculture as one of the most dangerous industries in Australia. ‘ We’ve used the Service in the past, but more than that, many of our students who end up working in rural communities may rely on the choppers at some point.’ Thanks Ella Saving lifes is a good thing I realy like Westpac Thanks off want y ou are doing Wes t pac. Love El l a Students from Valentine Public School learning more about the Rescue Helicopter Tocal Student Association President, Sophie Smethurst, the Service’s Community Liaison Officer Adam Tyrrell and Tocal Deputy Principal, James Hooke 6 Rescue Magazine SPRING 2016
