As part of Walk to School month, the staff of Gaelscoil an Chaistil invited local lollipop man, Michael Grant, to visit the school and speak to the young pupils.
Michael kindly spoke to the nursery and key stage one children on the importance of being safe while out walking on the roads.
He also played a few games with the children, allowing the children to take on the role of a lollipop man.
“As part of Walk to School month, the school has been focusing on different aspects of road safety and healthy lifestyles. We thought it would be a great idea to invite a familiar local representative to visit the school and share their experience and knowledge with the children and
staff,” explained principal Brídín Ní Dhonnghaile.
“The children thoroughly enjoyed their hands on experience of learning about staying safe while out walking on the roads. We would like to thank Michael for taking the time to visit the school and for providing a fun filled morning for our pupils.”
