  1. Hello Class,

    You are so lucky to have community helpers visit you. First of all a police, now a paramedic. They are very important people in our community.

    From all of your comments, I can see you have learnt quite a bit. I see you also know about ringing 000 in an emergency. That is a very important phone number to know.
