All Form 1 and 2 students at Wilson’s competed in the Mullingar Credit Union Quiz which was held in the school on Tuesday 23rd November. The quiz was sponsored by Mullingar Credit Union, who provided a very generous €280 in funding for prizewinners. Questions ranged across history, politics, geography, music, sport and more.
Competition in both quizzes was very tight between students, with many prizewinners only divided by their response to the tie-breaker question: ‘What is the distance between the GPO and Eyre Square in Galway City’? In Form 2, Rory, Mark G and Sinead were the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizewinners, followed by runners up Hannah, William and Eva. In Form 1, Charlotte, Aoife and William were the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizewinners, followed by Aran, Sheona and Saege. Charlotte’s score of 55 correct answers was the highest score by a large margin across all of Form 1 and Form 2.
Congratulations all and thank you again to our sponsors! Thank you to Mr Burke for organising this event in school.
