The Pat Whitney Sprocket Rocket program reaps its rewards – 4th, 5th and 6th class in Rathnure are now cycling to school!
Local residents were made aware via parish newsletter, announcements at mass and signs on all approach roads to school.
Kids wear high viz jackets, helmets and are aware of their own responsibility towards other road users.
They now have a basic knowledge of the rules of the road and are competent in giving correct hand signals etc.
And Kieran Cooney (Sproket Rocket graduate 2011) won his first u/14 race on Wed night!
