Farm Safety Calendar Competition

Gloria Matthews from the Workplace Healthy & Safety Department of QLD Government has dropped in some information regarding the Farm Safety Calendar Competition for 2019. Please see below the link to a webpage which has more info. This competition is for students in Primary School only.

The safety messages students may base their drawing on:

  • Look out for machinery and vehicles because the driver may not see you.
  • Quad bikes are a great tool, but they are not a toy. Ride ready – wear a helmet, never double, kids only use a kid-sized bike, get training, and ride on well-known tracks.
  • Look up and live – power lines and machinery don’t mix.
  • Be sun safe! Wear a hat, sunscreen and a long sleeve shirt when working in the sun. And don’t forget to drink water and have rest breaks.
  • Dams and waterways are dangerous places on farms. Stay away unless you have an adult with you.
  • A fenced yard for young kids and toddlers to play in will keep them away from many farm dangers.

Entries must be received by 5pm Friday 28 June 2019. Winners will be announced in September, and the calendar will be available from October. As the deadline is during school holidays, I am happy for students to drop their artwork into me at Reception during the break and I will send them all off in time.
