Pupils from Holy Rosary Primary School have visited the Aurion Learning headquarters today to take part in the 'Time to Read' programme and educational resource www.safehome4me.com
As part of the online learning company’s corporate responsibility initiatives, the Aurion team spent the morning with the young pupils helping them learn to read confidently and partake in the accident prevention scenarios and games on www.safehome4me.com
Speaking about the initiative, Ciaran O'Hare, Director of Aurion Learning said:
“'This is our fourth year supporting the 'Time to Read' programme and we are proud to support local communities to implement this resource. The team at Aurion thoroughly enjoy working with local schools through this initiative as it helps to improve children's literacy at a young age.
The SafeHome4Me resource also helps children develop attitudes and behaviours around keeping themselves safe, keeping others safe and knowing what to do if an accident happens.”
