On Tuesday, April 12th we held a special ‘Hero day’ at Opua School to celebrate the unsung and real heroes of our community – the police, fire service and ambulance crews. Our children dressed up as their heroes and then spent 30 minutes with each service learning about the work they do and experiencing some amazing ‘hands-on’ activities. A special thank you to Marlene Parata of St Johns who was the driving force for this event and thank you to all those other heroes for coming along and sharing their time and expertise with us. It was also lovely to be able to welcome some pre-schoolers to our site to enjoy the day also.
