02/02/2009 LORETO COLLEGE RETAIN QUIZ TROPHY

The Year 8 Quiz Team from Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, celebrated success in the Causeway Credit Union's annual school's table quiz, held in Coleraine Town Hall on 2nd February 2009.  This is the first stage of the Credit Union All-Ireland schools' quiz, the largest inter-schools event in Ireland.

The Loreto Team 1 of Annie McBride, Clodagh McBride, Beth McIvor and Rebecca McKillen scored an impressive 63 out of 72 points, beating 13 other teams representing 7 local schools.  Credit is due to Dominican College who remained close to Loreto throughout the event, finishing in second place with 60 points, and also to Loreto's Team 2 (Conall McGinley, Tiarna McGinty, Erin McGowan and Rhiannon Turner) who finished third, with 59 points.  Damhead Primary School won the primary schools' section of contest.

Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal, congratulated the team and their coaches, teachers Mr Clarke Rice and Mrs Katrina Brolly, and wished them continued success in the regional finals of the event, to be held in Ballymena in late February.
