Fire Safety Visit

 

On Monday 3rd October, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes were given a fantastic presentation by local fireman, John O’Regan. John spoke about fire safety and how we all play an important part in promoting fire safety, whether we are at home, out playing with friends or what we can do if we come across a fire.

He answered questions about the Fire Station, the Fire Brigade that they travel in, the equipment he uses and John also spoke about his duties within the fire service.

Thank you Fireman John for your very enjoyable visit. smile

Water Safety

Water Safety

We were very lucky to have had a visit by Ciara of Water Safety Ireland recently. She gave a very informative talk and presentation to each class group about staying safe around water at the beach, at the pool, on the farm, around inland waterways, and around the home. 

Ciara taught some basic life-saving techniques and each class was provided with an opportunity to put these techniques into practice in the schoolyard using lifebuoys. 

We’d like to thank Ciara for her visit and it is certain that each class certainly took a lot of important water safety information on board from her visit.

Please check out some pictures below from some of the rescues and presentations.
