Community paramedic Mikael Kjellstrom visited Vavenby Primary School on Tuesday, Dec. 5.
He taught the students when to dial 911.
First there was a discussion on what an emergency was and pictures were shown. Then Kjellstrom played a video, cartoon format, that went over the information again.
After the video the students asked questions. Many of the children told of incidents where 911 was called. Nathaniel Weber wanted to know how many calls they got.
Coloring sheets were handed out. There were six different scenes and the students had to answer if a picture was an emergency or not. It was half and half for the one of the cat stuck up the tree.
Cold enough to skate
Vavenby resident Kevin Sheffield has started flooding the outdoor skating rink near the Vavenby Community Hall. Users should remember to shovel it off after use.
Anyone wishing to help keep the rink going, please phone Sheffield at 250-676-0078.
