NEW!! Health and Safety Authority (HSA) 'Stay Safe on the Farm' Safety Resources for Primary Schools

HSA Logo NEW CMYK 103E7483

The Health and Safety Authority has developed resources to give farm safety messages to Primary students in 30 minutes. These are available at under Teacher Supports and Resources. These include a Farm Safety Presentation - Primary: a set of seven PowerPoint slides, specifically developed for use in all Primary classes. Teachers can use them with their whiteboards or print off to photocopy. On the Farm videos showcase child safety on the farm from the child's own perspective. In addition to this, the HSA's dedicated e-learning portal contains a short interactive course for Primary students called Keep Safe on the Farm (two x 40 minute online lessons suitable for the whiteboard). A certificate can be downloaded for the class once complete.


Kilkenny Education Centre Data Protection Update - May 2018

A new data protection regulation, GDPR, is coming into force on May 25th 2018. It applies to organisations that are based in the EU. Kilkenny Education Centre has sent the following information to schools to outline our approach to maintaining continued contact and to make clear to all Kilkenny Education Centre service users what their data rights are with respect to knowing:

a) What data Kilkenny Education Centre collects on its service users;

b) What Kilkenny Education Centre does with user data; and

c) How to obtain a census of what data Kilkenny Education Centre holds on you as a service user.


The answers to these questions are straightforward:

a) Kilkenny Education Centre holds no information on its service users other than that which was given on school contact databases or participant contact forms (name, address, institution, title, e-mail address, participant role, participant mobile phone number etc.); that which service users voluntarily put on their Kilkenny Education Centre website user account; information given to us on Expense Claims (expense details, bank paying-in details, and receipts); e-mails and correspondence; details of financial transactions made, for example, course fee payments taken, and grants paid out to individuals or schools.

b) This limited amount of data that Kilkenny Education Centre holds is only used for the following purposes: for having an up-to-date list of schools, event bookings, attendance rolls, course and project participants; for sending out communications about available courses and events, and for staying in touch with schools, tutors and account users; for keeping track of who has paid course fees, when, and how much has been paid; for compliance with the Charity Regulator’s or Department of Education and Skills’ requests for information and legally-binding accounting purposes (e.g. knowing to whom Kilkenny Education Centre has paid grants and expenses, when, and how much has been paid); e-mail addresses and contacts necessary for administering and carrying out Kilkenny Education Centre projects and Centre business.

c) If any Kilkenny Education Centre service user would like further clarification on what data are kept on them personally, or, moreover, if any service user would simply like us to delete and dispose of any information we have on them, you can get in touch with the Centre Secretary of Kilkenny Education Centre at any time using the following e-mail address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (Please Note: that Kilkenny Education Centre will process such a request within legal parameters within 30 days). 


Finally, please note that Kilkenny Education Centre payments received as part of course fees are handled by third party banking websites, so we do not have any users’ PayPal/credit/debit card details at all; nor does Kilkenny Education Centre analyse the cookie information that may be gathered on our website, nor do we sell any information on, nor do we give any information we have to third parties unless legally obliged to do so or unless the Education Centre network has a working relationship with relevant organisations for the provision of courses and projects. For specific courses or projects operated in collaboration with relevant organisation, such as support services, the Health & Safety Authority or Arts organisations, the collaborative partner is identifiable at the outset. Kilkenny Education Centre protects the devices such data are stored upon, and is obligated to report to its service users any data breaches perpetrated.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch, should you have any questions regarding same.

Health and Safety Authority (HSA) 'Under the Sink' Safety Resource for Primary Schools

HSA Logo NEW CMYK 103E7483

A new Health and Safety Authority (HSA) safety resource for Primary schools entitled Under the Sink is now available to download on the HSA website.

This ready to use resource is designed to raise awareness amongst younger children of the dangers of household chemicals. Under the Sink is a short, clear, online presentation, designed for use on classroom whiteboards and comes with useful teacher guidelines, including a lesson plan and suggestions for follow up cross-curricular activities. While the resource is most closely linked to the SPHE curriculum objectives for First and Second classes, with a little adaption, it links with curriculum objectives at other class levels and can also be used by teachers of Infant or Senior classes as an awareness-raising tool. This resource is also available as Gaeilge.
