Safety Awareness Flag

The Cork County Council Safety Awareness Flag is a programme for primary schools actively promoting safety. The fundamentals are based on the Irish Water Safety Primary Aquatics Water Safety (PAWS) Programme. This programme provides a fun and interactive introduction to awareness of personal safety around water for children of all ages.

There is also a focus on road safety within this programme. Effective safety procedures for walking, cycling and being a passenger are all incorporated within this programme and the RSA’s Street Smart Kids are available to come to schools to help put these new skills in to practice.

Knockskeagh NS received the Safety Awareness Flag in 2018 for their work on water and road safety.
