Congratulations and well done to our first class pupil Kelly-May Cogan Flynn who travelled to the top of County Hall on Thursday to receive a prize from Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Declan Hurley at the inaugural Primary Schools Road Safety Short Story competition!
The competition, launched earlier in the year as part of the Children’s Book Festival Week 2017, asked entrants to feature 2 children, Sally and Jake, aged 8 and 10, who are great friends and love to get up to all sorts of fun and games together. A requirement of the competition was that children would demonstrate within their story that they understood key road safety messages and that these messages would be relatable to other children.
Kelly May won the aged 6 to 8 category and her short story was deemed the best among hundreds of entries! Her winning story has now been included in a booklet which will be distributed by Cork County Council during educational visits to schools throughout the county. Well done Kelly-May!
