Inspired by the medieval Knights of St John who offered care and shelter for pilgrims and crusaders, the Order of St John was revived in Victorian England. It formed the St John Ambulance Brigade to put the Order’s humanitarian ideals into practice which spread across the world. Sixty years ago a service was established in Wanneroo quickly becoming a crucial community resource.
Visit during the School Holidays to take part in some fantastic activities with a First Aid theme, dress up as a doctor and tend to patients in a play surgery, find treasures of the past in a new museum clue hunt or craft a skeleton puppet to take home.
Join us on the 26 September and October 3 between 10:30-12:30pm for a visit from the St John 000 Heroes. Visit includes bandaging demonstrations, the recovery position puzzle board, 000 Hero book and bear readings and more.
