Schools’ Business Quiz at CIT
Then, on Wednesday of last week a group of students from the school travelled to the CIMA Schools’ Business Quiz held at the Cork Institute of Technology.
Teachers took 14 students from which 12 took part as three teams of four with two subs.
Business teacher, Pierce Dargan reported that the girls had both an enjoyable and worthwhile experience as the quiz was a mix of the Junior Certificate Business course and general knowledge.
