Credit Union Quiz 2018

Scoil Chroi Naofa entered two teams (u11 and u13) in the Athenry Credit Union quiz that was held in Clarin College, Athenry on Sunday the 28th of January. Both teams did brilliantly, with the junior team having a great day, coming fifth overall in their category. The girls put in a lot of work over the last few months attending quiz club every Wednesday and it showed in their results against a very competitive field. Many thanks to the eight girls who took part in the quiz last Sunday and to all the girls who took part in quiz club all year. With continued effort I’m sure we’ll perform even better next year.

Kilchreest Quiz 

Four teams from our school took part in the Kilchreest National School’s annual table quiz in the Meadow Court on Thursday, January 18th. We entered two teams in each of the categories (u11 and u13), with sixteen girls from 3rd class to 6th taking part altogether.  With the standard very high and competing against 69 other teams the girls performed very well, with one of our u11 teams coming fourth overall in their category. Our quiz teams are now busy preparing for the Athenry Credit Union quiz which is taking place at the end of the month. The girls have quiz practice every Wednesday after school and are coached by Mr Hanley. We are very proud of the commitment and enthusiasm shown by this group of talented girls.

Athenry Library Quiz

On Thursday the 26th of October nine girls from Fifth and Sixth Class took part in the annual Athenry Library Quiz. The girls were divided into teams of 3 and were among 20 teams entered from schools all over Athenry parish. The quiz consisted of 6 rounds of ten questions each. While they didn’t come away with the win, the girls did really well in their first quiz of the year with all three teams coming in the top half of the table. The nine girls who took part were Rosemary Ward, Jennifer McCreevy, Lenore Church, Sophie Donnelly, Willow O’ Neill, Amelia Drapiewska, Aoife Bergin, Farah Flannery, Maia Morgan. The team is coached by Mr. Hanley and was accompanied by Mrs Hallissey on the day.
