Local primary schools were invited to participate in this the first stage of the nationwide 2012 Credit unions School Quiz.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 such as geography, history, music, literature and sport.
This is the 21st 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 a National Final in Dublin in early April when 100 qualifying teams will compete.
