• Explain the role IFCO:
IFCO, a statutory body first established in 1923, is responsible for examining and certifying all cinema films and videos/DVDs distributed in Ireland.
Their aim is to provide the public and parents in particular with a modern and dependable system of classification that:
 protects children and young persons
 has regard for freedom of expression
 has respect for the values of Irish society

• Keeping the classifications as one strip, cut the information overleaf into separate cards
• Give each Patrol a full set of cards
• Guides to match the cards under the correct headings
