response we have ever had with a total of 220 schools taking part in the 11 heats.  It was very apparent from the Newry heat that teachers and pupils have put a lot of effort into preparing for the day. We very much want pupils to learn about road safety and the quiz is great way for them to learn in a fun and interactive way.

Tony McKeown from event sponsors, CRASH Services said, “We are delighted to be able to support the NI Primary School Quiz.  We have a close connection with road users and we are pleased to get involved with projects like this.  We commend Road Safe NI for all their efforts that got into this quiz every year
