Wilson’s were 2nd place champions in the Mullingar Credit Union’s Second level schools quiz on Friday 12th October. Wilson’s had two teams in the Annebrook House Hotel, where there was a packed audience of parents and teachers.

After half-time, Wilson’s Team A were in tied third place but the team of Caoimhe, Andrea, Katelynn and Oisín managed to edge their way into second place by the 12th round, in a nerve-wracking finish which saw them win 2nd prize by one point. Wilson’s Team B finished a very commendable 9thplace: Sarah, Leah, Ciara and Aaron.  

The A team answered 51 questions correctly out of 72, a whopping 70% of all questions correct. The students saw off 16 other teams, Questions included the likes of “Who wrote Alice in Wonderland?”, “How many strings on a double bass?” and “Where is the Sea of Tranquillity found?” The team received a goody bag and cash prize, as well as the option to go on to represent Mullingar at regional level. Rochfortbridge School were the well-deserved 1st place winners.

It was great to have the support of lots of parents there, and some students (especially the B team) supporting the quiz at very short notice (a couple of students dropped out of the team only this week). This made a real difference. Thank you to Mr Burke who organised the pupils to represent the school at this event. Many congratulations to the pupils!
