Farm Safety at Ballyhaise Agricultural College

The pupils from 4th, 5th and 6th class visited Ballyhaise Agricultural College on Thursday 17th Dec for a Farm Safety Awareness day.  The bus was kindly sponsered by FBD Insurance.  It was a very worthwhile visit and highlighted the dangers associated with Farms, especially for children.  I hope they brought all the safety messages home to other siblings and to parents!

The staff and pupils, accompanied by some parents, went on a `Santa Dash/Walk`this morning from Billis school to Billis Church and back as part of our Active Flag.  Luckily the rain stayed away!

Please encourage your child/children  to engage in some sort of exercise each day over the holidays..whether indoors or out.. We`d love to see some photos after the holidays of you and your family exercising!
