Scoil Thomáis had great success at the first round of the Credit Union Quiz 2019 in the Carlton Hotel last night. There were 45 teams taking part with over 180 pupils there answering 12 rounds of 6 questions. We are delighted to report that our two teams came in third and first place!
It was a massive achievement when you consider the number of schools taking part, and when you see just how hard the questions were too. For example, the children were asked who was the Prime Minister of Britain during the Irish Famine. They were also asked to name the Australian term for a pool of stagnant water.
We are so very proud of our pupils and it's such a pity that one of the teams missed out on the second place tiebreaker by only one point. Both teams worked so hard to prepare for the quiz with practices taking place during lunch time. Their hard work, determination and dedication really paid off! Thank you so much to the pupils' parents who came along and were a great support to the pupils (and teachers) on the night!
We look forward to the regional finals at the beginning of March.
A big WELL DONE to the following 6th class pupils: Amelie, David, Daire, Eoin, Grace, Laoise, Maia and Mustafa.
