On Friday the 29th of January eight pupils from St. Conleth & Mary’s took part in the Naas Credit Union Quiz in Scoil Bhríde on the Sallins Road. There were two competitions running simultaneously, one for under-elevens and one for under-thirteens.
All classes from 3rd to 6th class completed a quiz with their teacher and a group of children who scored highly attended practice sessions with Mrs. Nugent before four children from each age group were selected to represent the school on the night. None of the children on our teams had ever taken part in a quiz before and they performed really well on the night.
As a result of the high level of interest Mrs. Nugent is going to run a quiz club on Tuesdays at lunchtime to prepare for another school’s quiz later in the term.
Our under-eleven team was made up of Caoimhe Murphy (4th Class), Alison Power (4th Class), Róisín Nolan (3rd Class) and Darragh Lahart (3rd Class).
Our under-thirteen team was made up of Justin Cunningham (6th Class), Catherine Joyce (6th Class), Mia O’Connor (5th Class) and Oisín Lahart (5th Class).
