Kilmac NS are All Ireland Champions

 

There was great excitement in the school as our School Quiz team recently won the All Ireland u-13 Credit Union Quiz title after a pulsating and epic contest in the RDS in Dublin on Sunday, 2nd April 2017.

Over 5,500 teams initially entered this 32 county quiz, with over 20,000 children competing in the event.  Kilmacrennan School qualified to represent Letterkenny Credit Union in the National Finals and this event was hosted by Aiden Power.

The questions were challenging.  However our team rose to the challenge and were well positioned after the initial five rounds, scoring an impressive twenty-nine points out of a possible total of thirty.  Yet this left them in second place, with one team having made a barnstorming start of thirty out of thirty.

The team of Ronan, Thomas, Eilish and Eoghain kept diligently to the task at hand and were one point behind three other teams in  joint first as they entered the final round. However a great last round saw Kilmac effect a two question swing in this round, placing them one point clear, and outright winners on the day.  There were huge celebrations as the result was announced.  The winning school receives 1250, while the pupils receive a WII u and a silver platter

There was a rapturous welcome home in the School Hall for the winning team  that night.

Garda Visit to the School

There was great excitement in the school recently as Garda Mc Conigley of Milford Garda District paid a visit to Ms Greene’s Junior Infant Class, and to Mrs Boyle’s Senior Infants.  He gave a most informative talk, followed by a great questions and answers session  The children are well briefed on the intricacies of the law now!

Exotic Bird Display

There was great excitement in the school during the week preceding our Easter Holidays when Pedro brought in an array of exotic birds.  All classes thoroughly enjoyed the informative show and it looks likely that there will be flocks of ornithologists in Kilmacrennan in the years ahead!
