2023 Primary School Quiz

Northern Ireland Primary School Road Safety Quiz 2023 is launched at Steelstown Primary School, pictured along with pupils are Jonathan McKeown from sponsor’s CRASH Services, Davy Jackson, Road Safe NI and Mrs Siobhan Gillen, School Principal and children from the school.

Primary Schools are being invited to enter their local heat of the Northern Ireland Road Safety Quiz 2023.  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 Cookstown in March.

About the road safety quiz
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 but has had to be cancelled for the last two years due to Covid, although in 2020 we had over 220 primary schools register.  It is vitally 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 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 see the return of the Primary School Road Safety Quiz 2023 which will help, educate children and influence their behaviours towards road safety.”
