Land PAWS – Water Safety

In April  we were delighted to welcome Rosie from Water Safety Ireland. Each class participated in a Land Paws water safety programme with Rosie. Rosie spread the message of water safety in a fun and educational way. We learned about the various flags, how to spot dangers and obstacles, how to access dangerous situations and how to use a life buoy, rope, life jacket or other appropriate items to save someone in trouble in the water. We also learned the difference between a life jacket and a personal floatation device. Water safety in the home and farm was also discussed. This was such an informative day for everyone!
