“Beesafe” Safety Initiative lands at Willowbridge School

18th June 2019

More than 80 pupils from Willowbridge School, Enniskillen, took part in a mini Beesafe event on 13 June 2019.

The event, coordinated and funded by Fermanagh and Omagh Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP), provided learning on accident prevention and on how to deal with potentially dangerous situations.

Presentations were delivered on a range of topics including:

  • Online Safety by the PSNI
  • Road Safety by the PSNI
  • Fire Safety by the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service
  • Water Safety by RNLI

The interactive sessions provided pupils with the opportunity to participate in simulated scenarios in a controlled environment, giving them practical experience of accident prevention and coping with potentially dangerous situations.

Councillor Thomas O’Reilly, Chairperson of Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP, said:

‘We were delighted to bring mini Beesafe to Willowbridge. The key to the success of Beesafe is the partnership approach in the delivery of accident prevention messages. Many organisations have given their time and expertise to highlight accident prevention and safety messages which could potentially save a child’s life. I would like to take this opportunity to thank those organisations for their time and input into this worthwhile event.’

Bernie Cornyn, Vice Principal said:

‘Willowbridge School was delighted to host Beesafe in the school. Pupils heard important safety information from the PSNI and RNLI on keeping safe whilst cycling, on the internet or near water. Staff and pupils took away important tips and information that they can pass on to family and friends and that could be lifesaving in real life situations.’
