This was an amazing experience for all the children including us adults! We went to Ħal Far Station as it is also the head quarters. The station officer greeted the kids with a cheerful note and patiently explained to them the different types of trucks and why they are used for and the equipment they use in different situations including how to use the water hose! He showed them how to wear the firemen suit and explained how it protects the firemen and the older kids each had a turn to try them on. It was fantastic how interested the kids were as the station officer explained some safety procedures. Then he took the children for a short drive around the perimeter on one of the trucks. They had a blast hearing the siren of course! At the end we also had the opportunity to see a training session.
The Limestone Heritage is situated in the village of Siġġiewi and offers an engaging walk through our local history of stone masonry. There is also a farm animal park which the children enjoyed very much. The outing is more suitable for older kids to complement their study of our local history but the little ones still enjoyed exploring the girna and other features in the outdoor area, and the fossils and different types of stone in the souvenir shop. The peacocks kindly left us some of their feathers to keep as a souvenir!
