05/03/2004 LORETO TEAM TOPS CREDIT-UNION QUIZ

A team of Year 8 students from Loreto College Coleraine emerged victorious at the Regional Final of the annual Credit Union Schools’ Quiz this week.

The team, under the guidance of teacher Mr Paul Cunning, had already taken first place in the local round of the contest in early February, with team-members Andrew Crozier, Ryan McGahon, Peter McKeague and Donal McQuillan impressing the judges with their extensive knowledge and their lively competitive spirit. This week’s success sees the boys progressing from local to regional champions.

The Loreto team will now represent the region in the National Final of the event, to be held in Dublin early next month. An estimated 20, 000 children from throughout Ireland take part in the annual quiz, with the top 100 teams of students under 11 and under 13 taking part in the National Final. The Loreto team was congratulated on its great success to date and wished well for the challenges ahead in the prestigious Dublin event.
