While it’s been a busy a busy few months for Adopt-A-Cop, Sergeant Cliff Baird, at Longreach State School over at Our Lady’s Catholic School the kids have ‘adopted’ two coppers.
Firstly, for Sergeant Baird at Longreach State it’s been hectic with the school’s cross country and athletics days.
He has provided talks on the police and what we do, cybersafety presentations and participated in the visit with Bruce and Denise Morcombe.
Sergeant Baird also took time out of the policing world to attend the year three camp at Longreach Showgrounds where he took part in their astrological excursion and dinner.
He also surprised the year four’s at their camp in Winton where he attended on his day off and took part in their camp dinner and talent show.
The children were very excited to have him as part of their camps and especially the talent show.
At Our Lady’s, they have now formally adopted their Adopt-A-Cop’s, Constable Kim Lawrence and Senior Constable Blake Nicolson.
The school community was very excited about adopting these two wonderful police officers.
Acting Inspector Brett Wendt coordinated the ceremony along with Tanya Lambley, Principal of Our Lady’s.
Since their formal adoptions, Constable Lawrence and Senior Constable Nicolson have been very active in their Adopt-A-Cop roles attending under eight’s day, providing talks on cyberbullying, bullying, bike safety and laws.
Constable Lawrence and Senior Constable Nicolson say love attending school functions and interacting with the children of Our Lady’s and look forward to participating in many more school events to come.
All of schools in the region have now nominated an Adopt-A-Cop, all of which will be formally adopted in the coming months.
