Northern Ireland Primary School Road Safety Quiz 2020 is launched at Steelstown Primary School, who won last year’s event. Pictured along with pupils is Tony McKeown from sponsor’s CRASH Services, Davy Jackson, Road Safe NI and Mrs Siobhan Gillen, School Principal.
Primary Schools are being invited to enter their local heat of the Northern Ireland Road Safety Quiz 2020. The 11 heats are being held in January and February and two teams from each will progress to the NI final which will be held in Belfast in March.
The quiz, which is for P7 pupils, is organised by Road Safe NI Charity and is once again sponsored by leading accident management firm, CRASH Services 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.
Davy Jackson of Road Safe NI, commented “The event has grown well over the last two decades and last year we had over 220 primary schools register. It is vitality important that we educate young road users on key road safety issues.
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, we make the questions available to run the quiz back in the classroom too.
Tony McKeown from sponsors 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 like to encourage primary schools to take the opportunity to get involved.”
