Carn students graduate from road
Carndonagh Community School have successfully
graduated from a ground breaking road safety
programme facilitated by the Pro Social Drivers
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
