130 Upper Sixth pupils at Sacred Heart College, Newry have attended an interactive ‘2 Young 2 Die’ road education workshop. SH7The ‘2 Young 2 Die’ campaign uses hard-hitting content including real life case studies, videos, statistics and discussion-based workshops, to help young people think about issues such as speed, alcohol and drugs and the consequences of crashes for the victims, family and friends. So far this year (up to November 6th), 61 people have been killed on Northern Ireland’s roads, including 20 aged under 25-years and seven from the Newry, Mourne and Down area. Commenting on the initiative, Mrs Anne Lannon, Year Head, said, “The school welcomes the opportunity to stress the importance of safe and responsible driving to our students, many of whom are learning to drive or have recently passed their driving test.”
