A young Laois girl has been named FBD Farm Safe Schools Regional Champion for Leinster.
Clodagh George, a fourth class student in Arles NS, was nominated because of her wonderful knowledge of Farm Safety.
Clodagh’s great love of farming and knowledge of all thing’s agriculture has really inspired the children in her class to take an active role in promoting health and safety on their farms and in the local area.
Clodagh has proven that farming is not just for the boys by demonstrating how everyone has an important role to play in making our farms safe.
She has gone above and beyond by creating videos, taking pictures, and sharing stories of her life on the farm.
Clodagh’s teacher Ms Eve Eve Holohan is extremely proud of Clodagh and her wonderful commitment to the School’s Farm Safety campaign; she even got a head start on module two over Easter.
Farm Safe Schools coordinator and AgriKids founder, Alma Jordan explained what made Eve and the winners of Ulster, Munster and Connacht stand out from the crowd.
She said: WWe received a huge volume of entries for this inaugural FBD Regional Awards and it proves the ability and capability of our children to change the culture around farm safety.
“The winners have clearly demonstrated their passion for this topic and their willingness to share their learnings at home and with their classmates.
“They are growing the farm safety conversation and this is exactly what Farm Safe Schools is all about.”
As a result of her win, Clodagh will receive a family pass to Dublin Zoo which is sponsored by FBD.
Well done Clodagh!
