Road Safety Quiz


On the evening of Monday 26th February, four of our P7 pupils represented Downshire in the final of the Northern Ireland Road Safety Quiz. Twenty-two teams from across the country converged on Belfast for the big night, each having qualified through district events. Downshire had won the Lisburn and Castlereagh qualifier but we knew the final would be even more difficult so, to prepare thoroughly, many hours had been devoted to studying The Highway Code. In the end, after eight tough rounds of road safety and general knowledge questions, we were delighted to learn that Downshire had finished in 2nd place, only one point behind the winners. Well over two hundred schools had entered the competition so to finish second is a great achievement for our team of Poppy Richardson, Amelia O’Callaghan, Charlie White and Bryan Barr.
