170 Primary Schools who were successful in their application to the Safe Routes to School programme.
It aims to create safer walking, cycling and scooter routes to primary and post primary.
Huge interest with more than 900 schools applied, delighted to say that 6 schools in Dublin Central were successful including St Catherines, St Peters, Educate Together Broombridge, Central Model School on Marlborough Street, St Josephs, St Brigids and Drumcondra National School
Walking and cycling to school is great lifeskill for children to learn.
It’s not only physically healthy it is also mentally and socially healthy. It teaches children independence, resilience, and social responsibility.
Well done to all the schools involved.
