We are delighted with our Christmas cards.
National Community Games have created an online event for all children U16 in Community Games areas for Christmas.
Children from the junior and senior class participated in the second farm safety seminar during the week.
The event for older children included helpful tips on how they and farmers can stay safe around some of the main machinery and vehicles used on our farms. Children learnt the do’s and don’ts of quad bikes, the tractor safety checklist and P.T.O safety.
Children in the junior room learnt how to read the different behavioural traits and mannerisms shown by animals including bulls, horses and dogs.
It was an excellent learning opportunity using Zoom.
Expert advice is provided to parents by Dr Abigail Collins, HSE on what to do if your child has been in close contact with Covid-19 in school. The link is available here –https://youtu.be/x2Vur9Dx4dk
The children in the Junior room enjoyed creating and playing games in the playground this week. Each station allowed the children to design their own games using the equipment provided. Playground games help children to move effectively, to interact with others and provides opportunities for children to develop skills and understanding through enjoyable individual, small group and team activities.
Senior and junior classes participated in a wonderful webinar today. It was ideal for our budding farmers. This fun event included helpful tips on how to prepare for a safe farm visit by creating a farm safety checklist.
Children learnt how to recognise some of the safety signs on a typical farm as well as learning the behavioural signs shown by animals, including bulls, horses and dogs. We look forward to our next webinar on farm machinery safety!
