We love our Beau 😉 and his Mum Michelle. What a great opportunity and we are looking forward to hearing all about it when we see you both next.He’s only 10 years old. But he’s an honorary firefighter at the MFS. Meet Beau.
He’s living with Cystic fibrosis and Cerebral palsy - the only child in Australia living with these two conditions.
After learning about Beau’s condition through members of the local Port Pirie community, Station Officer Sulley made contact with his mother to organise a shift BBQ and mock drill.

Teachers Takuto and Rebekah, and curriculum support staff member Latisha, visited Lumination’s new Learning Lab at their Thebarton campus.
We received training on how to use Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) using our Education Kit from Lumination. We learnt how to incorporate this technology into our teaching practice in ways that align with the Australian Curriculum and specific learning outcomes. Using this immersive, hands-on approach to teaching allows students to participate in a collaborate learning experience, while also breaking down the barriers of the classroom.
Our next goal is to implement VR and AR teaching practices across all three Hospital School campuses, as well as using it in our learning online sessions with students who are offsite.
This year Hospital School SA has a focus on clear messaging that represent our students and shows our young people they are welcome, safe and supported.
