St. Joseph’s C.B.S. Nenagh will hold a tractor run in aid of Embrace FARM on Sunday, November 17th at 12pm.
Some of the school’s transition year students, who have farming backgrounds, have taken on the challenge of promoting farm safety to the student body and wider community.
Patrick Quigley, Jack Gleeson, Paul Seymour, Michael Ryan and Patrick Fogarty are organising the event with the help of their principal, Karen O’Donnell and teachers; Paul Butler, Michelle Forde, Paul Dolan and Dermot Brislane.
Peter Gohery recently visited the school to share his experience of dealing with the aftermath of a farm accident.
Speaking to That’s Farming, one of the organisers, said: “Unfortunately, a number of students from this particular group of transition years have been directly affected by farm accidents.”
“We wanted to do something to promote farm safety and so it was decided that we would organise a tractor run, create a farm safety video and hold a public farm safety awareness night.”
Registrations at CBS school grounds from 11 am - €20/tractor with raffle and BBQ included; special guest is 'Donkey' from GRASSMEN.
