This week, year 9/10 CFA students learnt how to draw water out of a dam using a fire pump to fill a tanker. This is a necessary skill in fighting fires in country areas. The students were undertaking this exercise at a fire dam at the back of Hawkesdale. They were placed in groups of four.
Local CFA members were in attendance to help teach these skilsl with two trucks in attendance. The pictures tell the story!
Our 2009 Athletics Age Group Champions recieved their engraved medals today. Each of these students represented Mitchell or Spring house in the secondary school House athletic sports and will compete at the Mid-west complex Athletics sports at Brauerander Park, Warrnambool. Congratulations on your achievements and good luck at the next level!
These students received certificates of recognition from Roz Stewart following their participation in the 39th annual Area 5 CFA competition, held at the Hawkesdale Recreation Reserve last weekend. Roz commended the students on their performance at the event and encouraged all students to be involved with volunteer activities within their communities.
