Public Service Day at Children 1st @ Sheffield

Our Early Years children received a surprise visit from some very special people to help us celebrate World Public Service Day.

The day, officially launched by the United Nations as long ago as 2003, has barely been recognised in the UK so far but public sector membership club Boundless wants to change that and put the country’s public service workers in the spotlight. So, to celebrate the contribution to society by the nation’s army of public service workers, from nurses to teachers, firefighters to administrators, Britain was invited to say “Thank-you‚” on Public Service Day on 23 June.

The children were excited when several Police Officers arrived at nursery to talk about the public services they provide by protecting and helping people in so many ways. There were uniforms to try on and tools and equipment used by the Police to be looked at and handled.

However, the fun didn’t stop there! We all went outside to find 2 big Police vans waiting for us to go and test out! The children loved sitting in the back of the big van with a ‘jail,’in the back, finding our nursery in the CCTV van and using the CCTV cameras to find some of our houses! What a super day!

Thank-you to South Yorkshire Police for making our Public Services Day so memorable.
