Yesterday, the whole school were surprised and delighted to have a visit from the NZ Defense Force.
All of the children gathered on the playground, but none of them knew exactly why!!!
After about 10 minutes, there was a noise. It sounded like quiet thumping.
Then louder .... louder...!
"Something's coming!" yelled some random child. That random child was correct. Something WAS coming... Something large and powerful.
Soon everyone saw what was making all the noise. It was a helicopter. A MASSIVE helicopter! An 11 tonne Iroquois helicopter from Ohakea.
Everyone got a chance to have a look inside and ask questions.
How cool! Here are some photos of this exciting, unexpected event ...
Thanks Mrs Simpson and Mr Borck for organising this special surprise.
