This year's Road Safety Quiz was the 15th in its history. The

working in conjunction with South Wales Police.
The quiz is held in the fantastic venue of the Apollo Cinema,
Aberavon, who kindly sponsor the event each year.
Every school in Neath Port Talbot County Borough is invited to
take part in the Road Safety Quiz and the event tests a team of 5
pupils from year 5 on their knowledge of road safety.

with 50 schools from the borough competing in the preliminary
rounds with an impressive 15 schools successfully qualifying for
the final heat.
This year's quiz final was won by Blaengwrach Primary School
with an extraordinary 97 out of 100 as their final score. The 2011
runner up position was taken by Groes Primary School.

runners-up and the winning team received a school plaque that is

All pupils entering the competition also receive individual
'competitor' certificates in appreciation of the hard work

this vulnerable age group.
