On Thursday the 1st of December the Business Studies Department in the school in conjunction with IT Sligo, Manorhub and FVDL held a Business Studies Quiz open to all Junior Cert Students in the surrounding counties. The quiz tested students of their Business knowledge as well as their general knowledge. We had schools from Leitrim, Sligo, Cavan and Donegal present on the night. Keith Higgins of Bank of Ireland and Mayo GAA launched the quiz and was available for pictures with all teams. It was a very closely fought competition with St. Columba's College, Stranorlar, Donegal coming first and second place and Summerhill College, Sligo coming in a close 3rd place.
Thank you to all the teachers who prepared their students for the quiz and accompanied them on the night. To our sponsors IT Sligo and Bredins for the goodie bags, provided to all students, Manorhub and FVDL for the one 4 all vouchers, St Clare’s Comprehensive School for the trophies.

We hope to make the quiz an annual event and look forward to welcoming all schools again in autumn 2017
