MQT: Milford Quiz Team was established this year. Sixteen children from fifth and sixth classes made it through the qualifying round to make the team. Since October the children have spent every Wednesday lunchtime working on all aspects of general knowledge, latterly using the school’s supply of ipads. They have also tackled homework assignments. More than five hundred children from third to sixth classes have participated in the lunchtime table quizzes organised by MQT to celebrate Friendship Week and Christmas. Its work inspired the Don Bosco Table Quiz in January.
MQT is currently enjoying competition success. Two teams have progressed to the county qualifiers for the Community Games Primary School competition. A further two teams participated in the Credit Union competition. Congratulations to our u/13 quiz team, Lauren Jackson-Kiely, Conor Hassett, Rory Clothier and Laura McMahon, on their great win in the Credit Union Quiz last Sunday in the Castletroy Park Hotel, securing a place in the national final to be held in the RDS on 12 April. Each team member won a cash prize. The team also won 200 euro for the school. Many thanks to Sandra Larkin, Elaine Rael and Linda O’Meara. Well done also to the u/11 team, Sinéad Hippolito, Gabriella Fitzgerald and Joseph Fitzgerald who also did Milford NS proud!!
