CHILDREN from Arthur Dickmann Children’s Centre’s Room 4 had the chance to go from making paper aeroplanes to visiting the Shepparton Aerodrome and having hands-on experience with both a light plane and a fire fighting Bell 212 helicopter last week.

Arthur Dickmann Children’s Centre service leader, Jenni Gibson said, “Our centre philosophy supports our programs to foster quality learning and development opportunities for our children, working collaboratively within our community.

“We also networked with Greater Shepparton City Council’s Children Services Department and invited children form Nancy Vibert Children’s Centre and Frank Pullar Children’s Centre to join us at the aerodrome, strengthening our commitment to building foundations for lifelong learning.”
