BALLINABRANNA NS recently held a road safety talk to mark the European-wide ‘Day without a road death’ initiative.
Alan Ryan and his colleagues Brian and Mark from Clogrennane Lime visited the school to give a lorry safety demonstration to each of the classes.
The school is positioned close to three quarries and road safety is a huge priority, explained school principal Sandra Corrigan.
During the visit, the children were shown the exact location of a lorry driver’s blind spots, they saw how important it is to be aware of lorries and how to keep a safe distance from them when they are cycling or walking on the roads.
Brian, Alan and Mark passed on lots of interesting facts and a particular highlight was when the pupils sat inside the lorry driver’s cab!
A raffle was held on the day. Thanking Clogrennan Lime, Ms Corrigan said: “There were excellent, it was really well organised and they were so good to take the whole day for it.”
