North Midlands Credit Union – Primary Schools Quiz
The primary schools quiz is one of our biggest events in the Credit Union calendar. It was just fantastic to have our schools quiz back for another year and to also see the huge turnout of students, parents, and teachers.
Due to now having 72 primary schools in our common bond area and with space constraints in venues, we deemed it necessary to hold two quizzes over two nights.
We held our first Quiz on Friday 26th January in Longford and on Monday 29th January 2024 in the Mullingar Park Hotel.
We had a total of 32 schools in the Mullingar Park Hotel, made up of 62 teams with 248 students taking part. The quiz was to a very high standard with all schools doing exceptionally well. There were two categories – Competition A which was for students under 11 years of age and Competition B which was for students under 13 years of age.
