Keep Safe!

Last week we had many activities for ‘Irish Road Safety Week’ where the pupils learned about road safety and about wearing hi-vis clothing, bag covers and vests to and from school.
We focussed on:
· The Safe Cross Code
· Be safe, be seen
· Wearing seatbelts
· Cycle safety
· Car safety
· Pedestrian safety
