Farmsafe Schools

Farm Safe Schools is an initiative by Agri Aware, Agri Kids and the IFA to promote farm safety. It aims to engage, educate and empower children to be farm safety ambassadors.

Pupils in Scoil Naomh Iosef will study three modules on farm safety over the months of March, April and May 2021.

Module 1 is Farmer, Farm and Fields, module 2 is Animals and module 3 is Machinery and Vehicles. As pupils engage with the content of these modules, pupils learning will be shown on this page of our website.

We hope you find this work both informative and interesting.
