Farm Safety Talk

First Class were learning all about the Farmer in Geography. We focussed on Farm Safety in particular.

John Hanley and Maura Canning from the Irish Famers Association visited our classes last Friday to give us a talk about the importance of farm safety.

We watched some videos and completed activities with Maura. We learned never to go near farm animals or machinery without adult supervision. We saw the dangers of electric fences, slurry tanks and PTO shafts.

Afterwards they gave us Farm Safety pens and wrist bands. Thank you to Maura and John for visiting Cloonakilla National School.
