The DRUM Magazine | August 2009 | 27 Year 1 Excursion to Ramingining Police Station When the Ramingining Community Education Centre approached their local police to have an excursion through the station, Senior Constable Paul Deller and Senior Constable Jason Whieldon were more than happy to show the kids through. Paul said that the school excursion was a great way to engage with the school kids and get to know them individually. The excursion is a relaxed and friendly way to talk with kids and build their trust. We give the kids a tour of the station and show them the inside of the cells, the police boat and the patrol car. They particularly love playing with the sirens. The group of Year 1 school kids proudly showed off their own individually decorated police hats, which they had made in preparation for their excursion. The kids ask plenty of questions and are curious about what being a policeman is all about said Paul. School excursions of the Raminigining Police station have become a popular talking point amongst the kids, and our local police are happy to facilitate the excursion. When the kids are having fun in Police company, its a really good platform to chat with them about being good and reiterating that the Police are there to talk to about anything, at anytime said Paul. The group of year 1 students at Ramingining enjoyed their excursion.
