On Monday, November 20, Scoil Iognáid launched the first School Streets project in Galway City and County. Hundreds of school children from Scoil Iognáid and their parents walked, cycled, scooted, or used Park ‘n’ Stride to travel to school. A ‘School Street’ is a road outside a school with a temporary restriction on motorised traffic at school drop off and pick up times making it safer and more attractive for children, parents and residents to walk, cycle or scoot. Scoil Iognáid ‘School Street” or “Sráid Scoile” was launched by Mayor of Galway City Council, Mike Cubbard, and Minister Hildegarde Naughton of the Department of Transport. Green-Schools travel officer, Caitríona Cunningham, attended the launch and she said “I am delighted to assist Scoil Iognáid achieve their School Street, and hopefully this School Streets project will be first of many other of its kind in Galway”. The School Streets project was funded by the National Transport Authority, and delivered with the support of Galway City Council, the Green-Schools Travel Programme, An Garda Siochána, and the wider school community.
