LE CHEILE ETNS on the Mornington Road have the smartest kids in Ireland!
And last Monday they were proudly displaying the evidence: the All Ireland Credit Union quiz trophy.
The four-strong senior team saw off 50 other teams in the RDS on Sunday in the national final.
The Le Chéile Educate Together National School quiz team comprised of Aoife Finn-Gallagher, Jonathan Clear, Ferdia Quigley and Andrew Keane.
The four Le Chéile ETNS teams worked tirelessly from January with their teachers Fiona O' Connell, Jessica Callaghan and Patricia Burke, with the Senior sixth class team fighting out to win both the East Meath Credit Union level on February 3 and the Credit Union Chapter level on Friday, February 28.
Students, parents, teachers and principal Rosemary McGonagle all battled nerves from the onset as quiz master, Marty Whelan, kept everyone entertained.
The winning team took home a Samsung Galaxy tablet each, a plaque, €1,250 for the school and The Credit Union Quiz cup.
