Ferny Grove State School visits Brisbane Northside Emergency
Recently the team at Brisbane Northside Emergency were visited by an inquisitive group of Year 1 students from Ferny Grove State School.
Year 1V visited the emergency department to experience first-hand what happens in an emergency room. The class was very curious about what happens in a hospital and how things work after one student had broken their arm and another had to have an operation! They learned a lot about their hearts, brains and bones.
The children also explored an ambulance and got to see what it was like lying on a stretcher. Many students had their arms put in slings to get a better understanding of what it may be like to have an injury. This caused a bit of confusion though when they appeared to all go back to school with broken arms!
Brisbane Northside Emergency staff were overjoyed to receive letters of thanks for their visit with students commenting that they loved the bandages and the beautiful fish tank in the foyer of the waiting room.
Below are some of the Thank You letter we received from the students!

Image reads: On Tuesday, Year 1V visited the Brisbane Northside Emergency. The class were particularly curious about hospitals and how things work after one student had broken their arm and another member of their class had to have an operation. Utilising the AAP funds, and tying in with their health unit, the class travelled to the hospital to learn about their hearts, brains and bones.
Everyone explored the Ambulances, felt what it was like to lie on the stretcher and had their arms put in a sling. Imagine Mrs Schott’s surprise when they all returned to school with a broken arm.
