The school enters all quizzes at local and
national level. The quiz circuit is now an itegral part of the school year and
we have practically dominated County Galway over the last few years.
Recent academic years have proved to be
especially successful for our school :
We won the local Garda quiz; are holders of the Mercy Convent Parent's Council
competition; were Connacht champions in the Credit Union competition
representing St. Jarlath's Credit Union, Tuam and also came ninth in the
All-Ireland Credit Union Final held in the R.D.S. in Dublin. We currently hold
the local St Jarlath's Credit Union trophy at Under 13 level.
In 2000 the school triumphed over
3,000 other primary schools to win the All-Ireland Final of the Cadbury N.P.C.
Challenge in the Burlington Hotel, Dublin. We were presented with the Perpetual
Cadbury "Glass and a Half" trophy and will also enjoy a fabulous trip
to Cadbury World in Birmingham. In 2002 the school went on to retain it's
Cadbury trophy, an achievement of which we are very proud.
