Members of the emergency services returned to school for a day in Fort William late last month.

Young people from Caol Primary School hosted officers from Police Scotland, along with members of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and Scottish Ambulance Service for a day of learning and interaction.

Constable Shaun Knox said: ‘What a fantastic day we had, I’m not sure I remember my school years being so good. The children’s enthusiasm and interest in what we are doing was incredibly humble and I think I speak for all the emergency services there that day that it was an incredibly enjoyable day.

“I hope the kids enjoyed it as much as we did and we look forward to more events in the future.”

Assistant Head Teacher Kerry Lamont added: “The children at Caol Nursery were delighted to meet some surprise visitors at their annual Fun Fortnight recently.

“They loved meeting the emergency services team, exploring their vehicles and asking lots of questions about their different jobs.

“As a school, we look forward to working closely with our local liaison officer in the future to arrange further visits and ensure our students know what to do and who to contact in the event of an emergency.”
