A team of brainy pupils from Scoil Roisin in Dungloe are on their way to the National Final of the Credit Union Schools Quiz this April.
The U11 team passed the local rounds and faced tough opposition in the regional finals to win their place in the third and final stage of the competition in the RDS Dublin on Sunday 7th April.
Now they’ll be brushing up on their general knowledge in a bid to take the title home to Donegal!
The team members are: Cora O’Donnell, Etain Boyle, Oisin Barrett and Kai Tobin.
The Credit Union Schools Quiz is a competition for school children across the island of Ireland. Each year around 25,000 children from the four corners of Ireland take part.
Now in its 28th year, this iconic event is extremely popular in schools around the country with primary school children vying for a place on their school team to compete at the local Stage 1 Credit Union level for a place in Chapter Stage 2 level and eventually representing one of the 25 Chapters in Ireland at the Stage 3 National Final in Dublin.
Mrs Ferry, the Principal of Scoil Roisín, extended her congratulations and good luck to the U11 Team from the school community. The team are delighted to be representing the school, the Rosses Credit Union in Dungloe and Chapter 1 Credit Union, Derry at the National Final.
Comhghairdeas agus ádh mór to Cora, Etain, Kai and Oisin in Dublin next month.
