Some of key stage 3 were lucky enough to go to the North Harbour Ambulance Station.  They had a wonderful time.   Tim the paramedic showed them round the ambulances, he let them go up in the lift on the special stretcher and showed them the inside of the ambulance.  He even let Lewis turn on the siren which made the rest of them jump.  After the pupils had finish looking around the ambulance Tim took them to the school room where he let some of them have a go in the Southampton sling and he showed them how we bandage different wounds and even let them try an oxygen mask.  Boo said she would like to be a paramedic but she doesn’t like going fast in an ambulance or the sight of blood so maybe she will need to rethink her career!
