Scoil Chaitríona Quizzes

Annually at Scoil Chaitriona Senior a school quiz is organised. Every child in the school is encouraged to enter and there are prizes for the winners and the runners up in each class. During different stages of the quiz pupils are asked two rounds of questions arranged under the following categories:-

  • Sport and Leisure
  • Science and Nature
  • Current Affairs
  • History and Geography
  • Music, T.V. Literature
  • General Knowledqe

Separate sets of. questions graded according to difficulty are set for the senior and middle classes.

Staff and pupils alike have enjoyed this interesting and refreshing way of broadening and extending their general knowledge.

By way of extension to this internal school quiz, each year we organise, encourage and enter teams for various out-of-school Table Quizzes.
Indeed we are proud of our success in this area. Over the years our children have been regular prize winners in various table quizzes organised by the Credit Union, National Parents Council, Cadbury’s Ireland, The Pioneer Total Abstinence Association, Seachtain na nGaeilge and Galway City Library.
In 1999, our school team won the National Final of the Credit Union Quiz, in Dublin, and have finished regularly in the top ten schools in the country since.
