Tadika Mariaville Good Shepherd, a well-known and established kindergarten in Ipoh, was chosen by Balai Bomba dan Penyelamat Ipoh to run a safety awareness programme for parents and children. The programme was held at the school premises recently.
Mariaville has always made a point of bringing the 6-year-old children to the Fire Station to have hands-on activities and learn about safety measures during a fire. It was indeed an honour to be chosen to be the pioneer among the kindergartens for this on-site activity.
Tuan P. Samasuvam, the Ketua Balai Bomba dan Penyelamat Ipoh, said that it was important for the public to be more aware of the need to educate themselves on first actions to be taken in case of fires at home, specifically in the kitchen.
There were activities that involved the parents’ participation such as “Kitchen on Fire!” Besides that, there was a colouring competition for the children and photo session with the fire truck.
