A CORK schoolgirl who captured her daily bus journey to school on video has won Bus Éireann’s ‘Go Places’ competition for the South region.

Jane Tiernan, from Christ King Secondary School in Douglas, won the regional prize which invited Transition Year students from all over the country to submit projects — in words, photographs, or videos — about their journey to school.

Jane’s video documented Rochestown and villages such as Douglas — where she gets the bus to at the weekends — the Bus Éireann bus stops she drives by and worst of all, the heavy traffic on her commute.

To help pass the time, Jane said she likes to admire the nature around her, listen to music and play cards with her younger brother.

After dropping him off to primary school, Jane then makes her way to Christ King Girls secondary school.

“It was fun recording and editing my entry and both the school and my family and friends are all very proud of my project,” Jane said.

“It’s well worth entering and I now have a new iPad and crystal trophy so I’d encourage TYs next year to do the same”

Jane was one of three lucky regionals winners, who won an iPad and crystal trophy each, with the overall winner receiving a day trip to Tayto Park for the entire class on a private Bus Éireann coach.

Jane’s prize was presented to her at Capwell Depot in Cork by Ken Robinson, School Transport Manager (South).
