Carn students graduate from road safety programme 26.04.18

STUDENTS from Carndonagh Community School have successfully graduated from a ground breaking road safety programme facilitated by the Pro Social Drivers Programme.
The pilot programme, the first of its kind in Donegal and indeed Ireland, was delivered to LCA students who attended modules designed to address particular problem areas such as emotional control, social responsibility, driving under the influence and the consequences of anti-social behaviour while driving. Students from St Columba's College in Stranorlar also took part.

The Pro-Social Drivers Programme was formed in Letterkenny and this "cognitive behavioural approach" continues to go from strength to strength.
It is being developed so that it can be rolled out to all secondary schools in Donegal.
Mick Quinlivan of the Pro Social Drivers Programme said: “We were delighted to be given the opportunity to deliver the programme and we would like to thank the Donegal Road Safety Working Group for all their assistance to date and we look forward to developing and expanding the programme to all the schools in Donegal."
