Guest speaker on natural disasters
Today all the grade 4 students went to the library pit so we could listen to the guest speaker Mr. Graeme Still to talk about his job and natural disasters. Mr. Graeme Still is a police officer that helps people stay safe when there is a natural disasters. He explained to us about three types of natural disasters. The first one was Typhoon, flood and landslides. He showed us a video about natural disasters and how they hurt people and how much there are really scary. He also told us about rules that we have to keep so we can stay safe for example he said never play with matches or lighters because it can cause a fire at home or anywhere or also don’t litter glass in the countryside because when the sun gets toward it because of its reflection it can cause a fire. Be careful when you are having a B.B. Q and always bring a bottled water so you can avoid possibilities of fighting fire. He talked about what kind of people can help us when there is a natural disaster. The police can help us, the fire brigade, the ambulance and the social welfare department can.
This topic is really fun and interesting to learn and discuss about. It was really fun.
