Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council Road Safety

Road Safety Quiz

This year's Road Safety Quiz was the 15th in its history. The annual quiz was once again organized by the Road Safety Team 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.

The 2011 Road Safety Quiz was the largest in its 15 year history 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.

Plaques to commemorate the occasion were presented to the runners-up and the winning team received a school plaque that is retained by the school for the year, as well as individual trophies.

All pupils entering the competition also receive individual 'competitor' certificates in appreciation of the hard work undertaken by the children in preparation for the competition.

It is hoped that the preparation and learning undertaken by the children has helped highlight many important road safety issues to this vulnerable age group.

Bridgend Police Quiz Final

Each year the winner of the Neath Port Talbot Road Safety Quiz final is put through to the Bridgend Police Final.

The 2010 winners of the borough quiz, Sandfields Primary School were put through to the 2011 Police Final. At this event, the school competed against 7 other teams from different authorities through 8 rounds including observational rounds, multiple choices and also a fun word search round.

The competition was strong, but despite this, Sandfields Primary School achieved an amazing 2nd position, making the Neath Port Talbot Road Safety Team and the school very proud.
