Every year, our local Credit Union in Bunclody, organises a table quiz for schools.
There are local, regional and national finals. Pupils can form teams of four, depending on their age, with separate categories for U11 and U13. There is always great excitement as teams are formed and pupils begin to brush up on their general knowledge and interesting facts.
March 2018: Credit Union Quiz Winners
Several children took place in the Credit Union Quiz in Bunclody on 23 March 2018. One team even got through to the next round.
“We first competed in the Millrace Hotel for the first round. We worked well as a team and were rewarded by placing second and qualifying for the next round. We practiced most Fridays and it paid off. We went to the next round in Ballinnaboullagh and yet again we came second. We got a remarkable score of 61/72. We also qualified for the next round. The next round was in the Whites Hotel in Wexford for the chapter final. We tried our very best but unfortunately came last. We enjoyed our time. We would like to thank all the other participants who took part.”
The team consisted of Róisín Carroll, Róisín Mulvihill, Isabel Whitty and Ellen Maguire. Well done to the girls and a huge thanks to Mrs. Warren who has been with them for all the rounds!
