ALL IRELAND CREDIT UNION SCHOOLS QUIZ
The Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) launced its 27th Annual All Ireland Schools Quiz in Jan 2018. The annual quiz sees over 25,000 school children under the age of 12 take part every year across Ireland.
The Credit Union Schools Quiz is one of the most exciting events in the primary school calendar. It consists of two knock out stages at local and regional level and culminating in a National Final in Dublin’s RDS in April 2018 where 100 qualifying teams will compete under the watchful eye of Quiz Master RTE’s Marty Whelan.
The Quiz was run throughout communities all over Ireland by volunteers from over 300 credit unions. It seeks to encourage teamwork among young children under the age of 13. The questions are compiled by primary school teachers and cover a vast array of topics such as geography, history, music, literature and sport.
Registration for the Schools Quiz took place in December, with registration forms sent out to the local schools inside our common bond. Teams had to submit their official entry form before the deadline to Link Credit Union.
