Careflight Visit

Careflight Visit

Janine Birch and Roxy Morton delivered an informative presentation to Transition to Year 6 classes last week. The students were shown videos of the work that Care Flight do when people in rural and remote areas are injured or in need of medical attention.  Janine described the aeroplanes and helicopters that they use and talked about the equipment that doctors and nurses use to save lives.

The students thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and were particularly excited about having the opportunity to try one of the nurse’s flight jackets and helmet. The students also received a ‘build-you-own’ care flight plane to take home.

Janine explained that Care Flight gets most of it’s funding from public donations. The Durack Student Leadership Council are helping them by running a paper plane flying competition throughout next week. Students are invited to bring a gold coin donation and receive a piece of paper to build their own paper plane. Heats will run at lunchtime from Monday until Wednesday with the finals on Thursday. Students may enter as many times as they like (gold coin for each piece of paper). Last year we raise $171 for Care Flight and we want to raise even more this year.
