Annual Primary Schools Science Quiz

Hazelwood College Primary School’s Science Quiz goes ‘round’ West Limerick for Science Week 2014!

Science Week Ireland 2014 was celebrated at Hazelwood College with the sixth annual Primary School’s Science Quiz on Thursday night, November 13th. All local primary schools were invited to attend this exciting event to promote Science Week. 2014 was a record breaking year for the number of tables competing in the quiz, with 42 teams registered to take part on the night. It was wonderful to welcome all of the primary school pupils, teachers, parents and friends who attended on the night. All of the primary pupils thoroughly impressed, with their teamwork and knowledge, during ten rounds of questioning. Spectacular lucky dip spot prizes and refreshments were very popular among the eager pupils at the half-time break. As the end of the quiz came to a close, excitement was high as the top three placed teams became apparent.

Congratulations to Broadford N.S who were overall winners, with Dromina N.S coming in second place and Mahoonagh N.S in third place.
