The children in Scoil Ghráinne’s Quiz team had two quizzes this week. The first quiz was held on Monday 2nd February in St. Peregrine’s GAA club. We had two teams involved in the competition. There were some tough questions but our team ploughed through them. Our teams finished very well against some very experienced school quiz teams.
The second quiz was held on Friday 6th February in Scoil Bhríde BNS, Blanchardstown. One team attended this quiz which is designed for 5th and 6th class pupils. There’s were 10 rounds of some very difficult questions. The quiz team did a fantastic job on the night achieving full marks on a number of rounds and ended the night on 79 points, just behind the winning teams. With a little more practice and experience our teams will take home the trophy in years to come. The team members (all from 4th and 5th class) were Gio, Joshua, Daniel, Claire, Jeffrey, Dean, Victor, Tofumni and our formidable sub Adna. The children did the school and their teachers Mr. M. Byrne and Ms. Egan very proud. The children received a €300 grant for the school and a goodie bag on both nights.
