Limerick Water Safety visits our school!

Limerick Water Safety visits our school!

On Wednesday and Thursday we were delighted to welcome instructors from Limerick Water Safety to complete PAWS workshops with all girls in the school.

As we get closer to our school summer holidays and as the weather improves, we are looking forward to enjoying our time in the sun. Around this time the children are excited to spend more time in the water, at home in a pool or away at a beach. Going hand in hand with this is highlighting awareness around how we can keep safe in and around the water.

There was also some lifesaving equipment and the children had the opportunity to learn about these, recognise the equipment and learn how to use this vital equipment.

Water Safety Ireland’s PAWS (Primary Aquatics Water Safety) outlines the essential life-saving guidelines that every child needs to know. PAWS teaches children how to be safe around water in homes, farms, pools, beaches and on our waterways.It incorporates all aspects of the physical education aquatics strand of the primary school curriculum.

As a school we know the importance of these workshops cannot be overestimated and we thank Limerick Water Safety for visiting our school this week!
