When it comes to quizzes it seems pupils from Sixmilebridge National School have all the right answers.
The quiz quarter of sixth class pupils – Sineád Cahill, Luke O’Halloran, Colin Kelly and Will Fitzpatrick- came out top of the class in the recent Avonmore Super Schools Quiz on Clare F.M.
The quiz was recorded in St. Finnachta’s National School by Breakfast Show host Ciara Revins. The students were asked ten general knowledge questions and had ninety seconds to complete them.
Answering all ten questions in a time of fifty-nine seconds, the fastest time in the history of the quiz, the team put themselves in pole position to win the title.
However, they then had to ensure a six week wait as a further 36 schools faced the quizmaster and the clock before Ciara eventually broke the good news to them – their score had not been bettered.
The team celebrated joyously with lollipops courtesy of Ciara when she called to the school last Thursday to present them with the winner’s cup.
