Safer Internet Day 2019

Today is Safer Internet Day 2019.  To mark the occasion everyone in Scoil Chill Ruadhain was very busy learning about how to keep ourselves and others safe online. We learned about the importance of looking for permission before sharing photos of other people and why it is important to keep our personal information private and never share it online. We discussed what to do if we see something which makes us uncomfortable online and why it is important to create rules within our families regarding screen time and Internet use. We were delighted to receive Safer Internet Day wristbands to remind us all that together we can make the Internet safer for everyone!

Safety Awareness Flag

We were delighted to receive the Cork County Council Safety Flag yesterday in a ceremony in The Vertigo Room on the 17th floor of the County Hall. Fifth Class have been working really hard over the past few months in order to reach this achievement. They have been on water safety training days and have taught all the younger students about water safety.

 

Fire Safety

We were delighted to have a visit from the Fire Brigade this week. They set a chip pan on fire in the yard and showed us the scary effect water has on an oil fire. We learned that every house should have a fire blanket in the kitchen in case of emergencies!

Active School Week

This week was Active School Week in Scoil Chill Ruadhain and everyone had a great time! The activities included a skipathon, school walk, table tennis, basketball, circuits, cycling, dancing and many others. There was a big emphasis on cooperation and taking part, with older classes helping and teaching the younger children. Well done to everyone!
