Another ongoing successful year for the quiz teams of Scoil Chronáin!
In early January, Ms Doyle organised a school quiz at lunchtime to select the children to represent the school at the Members First Credit Union Quiz. Children from 5th and 6th class took part in this quiz. The school entered two teams in this competition.
The first round of the quiz was held on Sunday, 4th February in Fingallian’s GAA Club at 10am. The children had a great day and many of their family members came to support the teams. One of our teams came in 3rd place and as result they were through to the second round of the quiz. This team consists of two boys and two girls from both 5th and 6th classes.
The second round of the quiz was held on Saturday, February 10th in Parnells GAA Club in Coolock. The team from St. Cronan’s came in first place in this quiz.
We are now through to the CUDA National School Quiz. This is a competition which involves a range of schools from around the country. This quiz was due to be held on Saturday, March 3rd in the Crowne Plaza Blanchardstown. Due to the adverse weather conditions the quiz was postponed and will be organised again for Saturday, April 21st.
The children train for the quiz during lunchtime. They are all very dedicated to the cause! They are putting in a lot of work at home and their parents are very supportive. To date, the children have added to our trophy cabinet and they received vouchers and plenty of goodies for themselves.
