This lunchtime the Air Ambulance needed to use the school field and playground. No children from Monkwearmouth or Seaburn Dene Primary were involved in the emergency. Children were kept in the dining room with curtains closed to prevent them seeing anything that would be distressing for them. They were given the information they needed to know then a film was found to entertain them.
Personally, having seen the professionalism of the fire officers, police officer and ambulance staff, I am in awe of the work they do. We are proud to assist in any way.
