Muire Gan Smál Presentation Primary School has made the top five finalists in the nationwide Road Safety Authority (RSA) Video Competition.

The outright winners will be decided by a voting system which is open to the public online and both pupils and teachers are appealing to us all to vote for them now.

Vote From Any Device

“People can vote one time from any device and we think they can vote daily. But, as the smallest and only Kerry school in the final we need all the help we can get,” said project spokesperson, Emma Sweeney on behalf of the excited school community.

The winners get tablets for their school and the campaign aims to highlight the importance of the Safe Cross Code!

Safe Cross Code Dance

The RSA launched the Safe Cross Code Dance Competition 2019 for primary school students in early April and it’s now in its fifth year.

The competition encourages children to demonstrate to all pedestrians how to cross the road safely.

Along with their teachers, students nationwide from junior infants to sixth class recreate the dance, performing the song in either Irish or English.

Great Prizes for School

The best performers, according to the judges, will win great prizes for their school.

“Schools not only get to have fun while taking part in the competition but also to learn valuable life lessons,” according to the RSA.
