On Thursday last, December 1st, we had our annual Inter-Schools Maths Quiz for sixth class pupils in St. Attracta’s S.N.S. This was a wonderful occasion in which the children had an opportunity to showcase their numeracy talent and test their mathematical skills competitively at an inter-schools level. We had children from 16 other schools around the South Dublin region all vying for the coveted maths quiz trophy.
After six challenging rounds, we had an extremely close finish. In the end only two points separated the first three teams. St. Colmcille’s S.N.S took 3rd place with an excellent total of 33 points. Oatlands Primary School came in 2nd place with a fabulous 34 points, while our own school, St. Attracta’s S.N.S took 1st with a stunning final total of 35 points. This meant the maths quiz trophy stayed in the school for the first time in 11 years.
The St. Attracta’s S.N.S team consisted of Adam Larkin, Michael Harney, Aoileann Kennedy, Conor McLaughlin, Abi Cunningham, Ciara Lane, Cara Harper and Caoilfhionn Ní Bhaoill. These boys and girls represented our school so brilliantly on the day and they should be very proud of themselves.
We would like to congratulate the St. Attracta’s team on their wonderful achievement but also extend a huge congratulations to all the boys and girls who took part. It is such an honour for all of them to represent their school at such an elite level and we hope they enjoyed the day.
