Safety Circus Visits Eimeo Road

​Mackay's Safety Circus Team ready to share their important safety messages.
The Safety Circus is in town, and Eimeo Road School’s grade threes were lucky enough to see them live in their own school on Tuesday 21st February. The Safety Circus team loved performing for the grade three students who were an excellent audience. The students helped Jessie (the main character) to find her mum after she lost her at the circus, and together they learnt lots of new safety skills.
Safety Circus showed the grade threes all about how to stay safe when riding bikes, scooters and skateboards, and now they know to always clip up their helmets and act just like a car would on the road (stop at traffic lights and stick to the left).
They also know that they can help out their friends if they are ever being bullied. They can use the distracting method, that is taking the focus off the person they are picking on, and if it continues they should definitely tell a trusted adult.
Finally, they learnt all about listening to their bodies and the funny butterflies that can be in their tummies if they’re feeling unsafe. They know all about their five safety networks and that each finger is another trusted adult that can listen and help.
Safety Circus would like to thank the students and teachers at Eimeo School for having them and hope they enjoyed their time at the circus.
