Well done to our senior quiz team on winning the overall quiz. It was such a fantastic achievement to come in first place. The girls were presented with plaques and prizes by Fra Mollen, Chairperson of Tullamore Credit Union. It was a very tense night but all the girls tried very hard and kept their cool throughout. They will now take part in the National Finals in Enfield on March 9th and we wish them the very best of luck. Huge thank you to Ms. Lee for preparing the teams so well.
We held the final of our Spelling Bee on Tuesday February 12th. We had six finalists from 5th and 6th Class. It was very tense and the girls did very well under pressure.

Congratulations to Lillian who will go forward to represent the school at the Offaly final of the Spelling Bee on March 5th in Tullamore Educate Together School.
