We were delighted to host 48 teams from 26 primary schools throughout Tralee, Castleisland, Killorglin and surrounding areas as 192 children battled it out in a nerve-wrecking competition.
The theme of the 2019 Credit Union School Quiz was the ‘Power of Four’. To aim of the Credit Union School Quiz is to encourage local children to work together and see what they are capable of achieving as part of a team. We were delighted with the support from all the schools who battled it out for the fun filled action packed two hours. With the talent in the room it’s obvious that the future is in safe hands.
