Mountain bike app brings plaudits for Cookstown 13-year-olds, writes Sal McKeown
The school motto at Cookstown High School in Ulster is "Character through Knowledge", and their new-found skills in the world of app development are certainly testing the character of one group of students.
GTracks is a team of 13-year-olds helped by a 17-year-old mentor and they have won an amazing number of awards in the last 12 months. You might expect that Cookstown High School would be awash with all the latest technology but this is not the case. The school has had to look carefully at how to make best use of existing resources, and that has been a driver for creativity and imagination.
