Agri Aware Kids

On Thursday 23rd of November, Alma Jordon from Agri Aware, came to our school to speak to us about farm safety.

She talked about taking care around farm animals. She spoke about safety around farm machinery, electric fences, slurry pits and the PTO (power take off). She showed us different warning signs we might see on farms and explained what they meant.

We all enjoyed it and learned a lot about farm safety.

Team members were Ava, Bill, Charlie, Colm, Darragh and Victoria.

We first had a practice round against Kilmanagh National School. In the first round we were against Clinstown National School. Unfortunately we lost but we had a fun time, and we learned lots about debating. The motion for debate was ‘Live animals should be prohibited from circus acts’.  We proposed the motion.
