Schools To Battle For Credit Union Schools Quiz Honours

Thurles Credit Union

Local schools have been invited to participate in the first stage of the nationwide 2010 Credit Union School’s Quiz competition, being run by Thurles Credit Union in the Thurles Sarsfield’s GAA Club Centre on Friday 29th January 2010 at 7.30pm.

Over 25,000 schoolchildren under the age of 13 will compete in over 300 venues throughout the 32 counties of Ireland. The questions, compiled by primary school teachers, will cover such general topics as geography, history, music, literature and sport.

This is the 19th 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 salvers, certificates and prizes to the winning teams’ members, the winning schools will also receive a welcome cash prize.
