There was a special guest at Tooborac Primary School when a police helicopter recently touched down in a paddock across the road.
Staff and students were shown around the helicopter and the policemen happily answered questions from the excited students.
‘‘It was a great learning session and a thrilling local excursion,’’ Tooborac Primary business manager Rita Pollock said.
‘‘The helicopter was blue and white and had a giant camera on it,’’ Tooborac Primary Year 1 student Dorian said.
‘‘There were little things for the driver to check the engines and we watched it take off and fly around the school — it was an amazing day.’’
