Southern Riverina news - - News -

BER­RI­GAN Chil­dren’s Cen­tre par­tic­i­pated in var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties to cel­e­brate and pro­mote aware­ness of Na­tional Farm Safe Week last week.

The chil­dren were for­tu­nate enough to have a visit from lo­cal farmer and par­ent Jeremy O’Dwyer, who dis­cussed the var­i­ous safety equip­ment used while farm­ing.

The chil­dren were ea­ger to try on the safety gog­gles, hats and vests, while learn­ing about all the do’s and don’ts on a farm.

An­other visit dur­ing this week was from lo­cal train­ers, farm­ers and par­ents Emma and Si­mon Steel, who brought along a pony by the name of ‘Shorty’ for the chil­dren to have a pat and ride.

Emma dis­cussed the safety pre­cau­tions when near horses and dis­played the safety equip­ment used while rid­ing.

Si­mon was also ea­ger to tell the chil­dren some farm­ing sto­ries of his own.

The Ber­ri­gan Chil­dren’s Cen­tre would like to thank these peo­ple of our com­mu­nity for shar­ing and ed­u­cat­ing the chil­dren with their knowl­edge.
