St Comhgall’s College, Lisnaskea

Firstly, the award goes to a Fermanagh College which opened in 1970, which knows only too well the impact on road deaths on their school community. As a result, the College embarked on a five year plan to address the whole issue of road safety in the area. This programme has contributed significantly to raising awareness of road safety within the school community which in turn has contributed to the overall decrease in the incidents of road accidents involving young people.

The second winner is an all-boys school from Newry.  The judges recognised their innovative approach to road safety.  In particular making road safety products through a variety of projects.  In particular, ‘The Little Linker’ is a device which ensured primary school children could walk to school safely as the pupils each held a part of ‘The Little Linker’ and as long as they held the device, music played, if they let go, the music stopped, this was tested by a local primary school and the feedback was fantastic.

Another project was a ‘Reverse Booster Seat’ which ensured younger children were safely placed in the back of the car.
