There were 10 rounds for all and 2 extra rounds for the U13s. There were 6 questions per round. The U11s came 4th. They got 43 questions right out of 60. For third place there was a tiebreaker. There were 3 teams on 44 points and our neighbours Cong N.S. won by 1 point.
Our U13 team beat Claremorris B.N.S. by 4 points We received a plaque each, a laptop and a shield.
We were very happy with our great achievement as were our teachers and parents. We are practising hard for the next round!
Our “Art Squad” consists of pupils from 2nd to 6th. We combined our ideas to come up with project ideas.
After deciding on an array of topics, we held a general vote to determine the theme for the project. Following on from the vote came the tedious, but important matter of counting every vote. ( We pity the ballot counters in the upcoming election!!!)
In the end the theme “ Exploring Music” triumphed by quite a few votes and will become our topic for the Creative Schools project. Everyone is looking forward to the weeks ahead with Catherine, our Creative Schools mentor, who hopefully will inspire us all to be as creative as we can be.
