More than 60 schools from across Northern Ireland registered to take part in the Opportunity Europe Euro Quiz this year.   Regional heats were held in five centres:

  • Belfast
  • Derry~Londonderry
  • Ballymena
  • Omagh 
  • Armagh

It’s safe to say that everything went smoothly and lots of craic was had along the way.  The events provided a useful opportunity for students at different colleges to meet and network with their peers.  In addition the preparation work for the quiz enabled teachers to bring together learning materials and resources from a wide range of areas within the curriculum and to work of a cross-curricular basis.

After some tough battles and exciting tie-break questions in the different heats, the 10 finalists for 2018 were: 

    • Dalriada School
    • Down High School
    • Enniskillen Royal Grammar School
