A Visit To Kilkenny Garda Station

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Thursday 6th December 2018, all classes from First to Sixth visited Kilkenny Garda Station. First of all, we walked up to a camera one by one, and looked up at it and said our full name aloud. Then 1st, 2nd, 3rd  and 4th Classes went outside to the backyard. There were lots of vans and garda cars. In one of the vans, there was a cell for transporting criminals. We got to go inside it. We returned inside the station and found out how a breathalyser works. Gardaí use these to find out if people have drunk too much alcohol. I got to put on a garda vest. This protects a garda because it is bulletproof and stab proof. Lots of my friends got to put on the handcuffs. Some tried on the garda hat. At the end of our visit, we went to the conference room. We got a booklet and a road-safety vest to bring back to school. It was very interesting. The best news is that Ellie asked about the Garda horses and they promised to put our school on the list for a visit.
