Nearly 20 schools from around our common bond area of Kingscourt, Bailieborough, Mullagh and Moynalty gathered in Kingscourt community hall on the 31st January 2020. Young, eager and enthusiastic students gathered around their dedicated tables in a quest to become champions. The stakes were high – a chance to represent our area at the next chapter level and perhaps then even at national level, a goodie bag full of credit union stationery with a few surprises added to the mix, a medal or trophy for the mantel piece but most of all that sealed envelope with a cash prize! The anticipation of winning and spending had excitement levels soar to sky levels. At 7.30pm our quizmaster Jim Kearns silenced the crowd by kicking off the competition.
The questions were a mix of easy and difficult which made for a very tight competition which included a tie breaker round.
It gives us great pleasure in announcing the winners of our school’s quiz 2020.
