Local primary schools have been invited to participate in the first stage of the nationwide 2015 Credit Union Schools Quiz competition, being run by the Athlone Credit Union in Count John McCormack Hall, AIT on Sunday February 1 at 2.30pm.
Over 25,000 schoolchildren under the age of 13 will compete in over 300 venues throughout the 32 counties. The questions, compiled by primary school teachers, will cover such general topics as geography, history, music, literature, and sport.
This is the 24th successive year that the schools quiz has been organised by the Irish League of Credit Unions. It consists of two knock-out stages which will culminate in a national final in Dublin in early April when 100 qualifying teams will compete.
In addition to certificates and prizes to the winning teams’ members, the winning schools will also receive a welcome cash prize.
