Good luck to the West Mids schools taking part in our Schools’ Safety Challenge finals this weekend!
More than 4,000 pupils have been involved during this year’s safety-themed quiz. Just 36 students from six primary schools have made it through to Saturday’s final, being held at our interactive safety village ‘Safeside at Eastside’ in Birmingham this Saturday.
The Schools’ Safety Challenge is a highlight of the wide-ranging safety and prevention work carried out year-round by Safeside staff, volunteers and our firefighters.
Our Safeside centres are dedicated to teaching various types of safety, from fire and water through to financial and personal safety, to children and young people.
This year’s primary school finalists are: New Oscott, Birmingham; Highfields, Sandwell; Amblecote, Dudley; Trinity Church of England, Wolverhampton; Brownhills West, Walsall; Coundon, Coventry.
The pupils will be cheered on by parents and teachers. The final will also be attended by Councillor John Edwards, Chair of West Midlands Fire and Rescue Authority, senior officers from West Midlands Fire Service, the Lord Mayors of Wolverhampton and Coventry and the Mayor of Walsall.
