New Road Safety game launched in Cootehall NS

Fifth and sixth class students at Cootehall National School have developed a road safety game called SignTist.

Fifth and sixth class students from Cootehall National School have recently launched a new Road Safety game called ‘SignTist’.

SignTist is a memory game which enables you to learn the national road signs. The students created this game while working on a business venture as part of the Junior Entrepreneur Programme (JEP). This is an entrepreneurial awareness and skills enhancement programme for primary school children.

Speaking at the launch, Principal Cian Duffy congratulated all those involved in the project for their innovative ideas which culminated in the development of SignTist. He commended all those involved for their commitment in bringing their idea to fruition and said it was “a good example of the many talents and skills in the school”. Joe Bambrick, TY Coordinator in Carrick-on-Shannon Community School, said that the original idea was innovative and future thinking and praised the ability of the students to communicate and work together.

Micheal Regan of Accelerate Driving School, Carrick-on-Shannon said SignTist was an excellent product which will be beneficial for those studying for their driving test and for all aspects of road safety.

Proceeds from SignTist will go towards the pupils as well as a donation to Brothers of Charity Roscommon. SignTist is available for purchase from Cootehall NS (071-9667264) at a cost of €10.
