Primary Schools are being invited to enter their local heat of the Northern Ireland Road Safety Quiz. The 11 heats run over January and February and two teams from each region will progress to the NI final in March.
The quiz, which is for P7 pupils, is organised by Road Safe NI, which is a leading road safety charity, to promote awareness with primary school children.
The event is once again sponsored by leading accident management firm, CRASH Services and supported by a number of partner agencies like local councils and the emergency services.
The table quiz format will cover both road safety and general knowledge. The quiz will consist of 7 rounds of 8 questions plus and extra round on road signs. Prizes will be given to the top three teams and everyone involved will take home a certificate. Each school can send one team of 4 pupils from Primary 7.
Davy Jackson of Road Safe NI, commented “The event has grown well over the last two decades and last year we had nearly 200 primary schools take part. It is vitality important that we educate young road users on key road safety issues.
Jonathan McKeown sponsor from CRASH Services said, “As a business with close connections to road users we are delighted to get involved and support road safety projects like this. We have a strong partnership with Road Safe NI and they should be commended for running such an innovative event. I would encourage primary schools to take the opportunity to get involved.”
