On Wednesday 29th May representatives of the Credit Union came into the school to present 4 boys with a trophy. The 4 boys were David Kiely, Kevin Singleton, Seán Usher and Cormac Dempsey and they were being awarded this trophy for winning the All Ireland Credit Union Schools Quiz.
Ms. B. Dunne spoke about what they would be doing during the presentation and then Mr. Drewett gave a speech to thank the boys for representing their school and to congratulate the boys on their tremendous achievement. Then finally a Credit Union representative spoke and presented the boys with certificates. The two teachers, Ms. Dunne and Mr. O'Reilly, were also given a bunch of flowers and a sculpture of a blackboard with the word "Champions" etched into it.
Then when the presentations were over, everyone assembled in the middle yard for a photo for the Leinster Leader. The presentation then came to a close. It was a great day.

The winning team were David Kiely, Seán Usher, Cormac Dempsey and Kevin Singleton. The team were prepared for the event by Ms. Breeda Dunne and Mr. Michael O’Reilly.

That team were Dylan Stewart, Owen Sheridan, Tom O’Sullivan and Joe Morrin. Ms. Dunne has prepared many quiz teams over the years and is aware of the hours of hard work put in by the boys and their
