Try this quick questions with your newsboy/newsgirl – are you happy with the answers they give?  

News deliverers in the NFRN Northern District were asked to provide short written answers to each of these questions with each answer given a score out of 10. This questionnaire will help you tell if your news deliverers are safe.

  1. What made you want to become a newsboy/girl?
  2. a) Do you check your round before leaving and do you check with your employer for any adds, or stops?
    b) Why is this important?
  3. Why is it important that you ensure the paper is pushed right through the door and you close the gate, or door, after you?
  4. You go to one of your houses on your round and the milk is still on the doorstep and yesterday’s paper (the one that you delivered) is still on the mat in the hall – what would you do?
  5. What would you do if someone you didn’t know stopped their car beside you and called you over to them?
  6. What items would help to keep you safe while delivering your round?

Tie breaker: the motto “Be safe, be seen” is a good safety rule to abide by. Can you think of a new safety slogan
