Congratulations to Andrew Burrows, Adam Keeley-Schmidt and Andy Jeffers who won first place in the southeast region of the Irish Applied Maths Teachers Association (IAMTA) annual team quiz last Wednesday.

They were worthy champions and showed great calmness under pressure. The quiz consisted of eight rounds of questions which each team had to answer against the clock, so there was little room for error.

The first rounds consisted of two minute questions followed by longer eight minute questions. Against stiff opposition from 16 other schools, the Kilkenny College team won out in the end.
