We are delighted to inform you of the following achievements by our talented and hard working pupils:
Our Credit Union Quiz Team of Razuk Atik, Tara Kennedy, Emma Maher and Eoghan O’ Hagan achieved 8th place in the U13 category in the All-Ireland Final recently. Considering that every primary school in the country participates in this quiz, finishing in the top eight is a remarkable achievement and we congratulate the team and all involved in preparing them. We also extend our congratulations to Cillian O’ Brien who was part of the original team which came 1st at District Level but who was unable to participate in the subsequent competition due to circumstances beyond his control.
