Science Week Table Quiz

Our TY students enjoyed a brain teasing and fun table quiz on Friday 13th Nov organised by Ms Duffy’s fifth year Agricultural Science students to celebrate science week. The competition was very strong with only a point separating the top three tables in a nail biting finish with Keeva O’Sullivan, Cara Dalton, Shannon Deane and Tess O’Donovan emerging as the winners. The girls took home a lovely steak dinner hamper each. Our best dressed farmer and farmerette prize went to David Toohey and Aisling Ryan.

 Special thanks to 5th Ag Science students Emma Foley Cahalan, Emma Gleeson and Thomas Coonan for organising and running the table quiz.
