Local primary schools have been invited to participate in the first stage of the nationwide 2013 Credit Union Schools’ Quiz competition, being run by Ballyhaunis Credit Union in the Parochial Hall, Ballyhaunis on Friday, February 1 at 7.30pm.
Over 25,000 school children 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 22nd successive year that the schools’ quiz has been organised by the Irish League of Credit Unions. It consists of two knock-out stages which culminate in the national final in Dublin in early April 2013 when 100 qualifying teams will compete.
The winning team members will receive salvers, certificates and prizes.
