All roads led to Drogheda Institute of Further Education on Friday evening, as the crowds poured in for the annual Credit Union Quiz. This is always an exciting evening with schools from all over Drogheda and East Meath taking part. Two competitions run side by side with the Senior Competition having two extra rounds of questions at the end of the evening.
And what an end there was to the evening!
As the scores were announced it was clear to everyone that our junior team had come out on top to be clear winners!
Then scores for the Senior team were then announced. In an unusual twist there were seven teams all tied on a score of fifty five points for third place. But, with just one point between them and second place, our Senior Team were also declared winners! The boys had bagged us a double first!
The secret of the boys success is just that- a secret! Suffice to say the eight boys worked very hard with their teachers on their general knowledge and on quiz technique. And had worked equally hard at home with their parents and families. We are immensely proud of their achievement on Friday evening. They go on to represent us again in the next round of the competition Friday 7pm in the Pillo Hotel, Ashbourne.
