People who help us

Not only does Mr. Tribble do a fantastic job at running our school but he also helps people in his spare time. Today he kindly showed us his truck and shared with us how it helps people and animals who get stuck in snow, mud and water. Did you know in his survival box he keeps a Pot Noddle to help warm people up after he rescues them?! P.S - Please excuse Mr. Lopez’s loud, screechy voice. He gets as excited as the children sometimes!
