Hurray! Hurray! for Water Day at Loughborough PSby Julie Druker
Primary students at Loughborough Public School in Sydenham enjoyed a mid-day break at the Point on the football field, slipping and sliding under the steady stream of powerful water hoses on what could not have not been a better day for it.Members of the South Frontenac Fire Department were more than happy to bring heat relief and smiles to the students’ faces on June 19, a sweltering day.
The event was organized by Kindergarten teacher Sharon Isbell. School principal Helen Peterson said that not only is Water Day a great opportunity for students to enjoy a bit of physical fitness and fun but that it is also gives the younger students at the school an opportunity to become acquainted with members of their local fire department. Fire Chief Rick Chesebrough said that he and his team are more than happy to indulge the students in a bit of end of the school year summer fun.
