Association of Teachers of Spanish Annual Quiz 9th March 2009

On 9th March, The Association of Teachers of Spanish will hold their annual quiz in St. Michael's School, Ballsbridge.  There is huge interest from students studying Spanish from Transition Year, 5th and 6th Year. Teams are made up of four students however, only 3 teams per school are permitted to enter. Therefore, we will have to have our own mini quiz, in-house and select our best candidates to go forward.  The quiz is always a fun and informal night for both students and teachers with refreshments being served at half time. There will be lots of spot prizes on the night and who knows we could be presented with the annual cup at the end of the quiz!
