The quiz, which is for P7 pupils, is organised by Road Safe NI Charity and once again the NI Final will be sponsored by leading accident management firm, CRASH Services, with individual heats being sponsored by local businesses and supported by other organisations including emergency services, PCSPs, and local councils.
The table quiz format will cover both road safety and general knowledge. The quiz will consist of 7 rounds of 8 questions plus an extra round on road signs. Prizes will be given to the top 3 teams and everyone involved will take home a certificate. Each school can send one team of 4 pupils from Primary 7.
Road Safety Education
Davy Jackson of Road Safe NI, commented “The event has grown significantly over the last two decades in 2023 we had over 220 primary schools register. It is vitality important that we educate young road users on key road safety issues. Budget cuts across Northern Ireland have had a significant impact on road safety education in schools and our aim is to involve as many primary schools as possible to ensure that children, who are one of the most vulnerable road users have an opportunity to learn the rules of the road and so they are safe when using the road.
The quiz offers an ideal opportunity for the entire P7 class to learn about road safety in a fun and engaging way. The schools then pick their team to represent the school. Following the regional heats, the questions become available to run the quiz back in the classroom for all to enjoy and learn from.
Jonathan McKeown, CEO at CRASH Services commented, “At CRASH we are passionate about playing our part in helping to promote road safety to all road users across NI. It’s important that road safety education starts at an early age, and we are delighted to once again be the headline sponsor for the final of the Primary School Road Safety Quiz 2024 which will help, educate children and influence their behaviours towards road safety.”
