On the 15th of November, eight students were selected from 3rd year to represent Beaufort in a Business quiz. The quiz was organised by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the Business Studies Teachers Association of Ireland (BSTAI).
As a very pleasant treat, we were accompanied by our Business teachers to Eddie Rockets. We all enjoyed the delicious snacks while brushing up on our general knowledge. The nerves began to kick in as we departed but they were quickly lifted with the lively atmosphere in the car to Tallaght IT. When we arrived we were shocked to see the amount of students from all areas of Leinster. We were greeted with smiley faces and a very organised environment. Quickly the quiz got underway and we had a flying start. The quiz consisted of ten rounds of mixed general knowledge and business studies questions. There were a couple of peculiar, challenging questions but we gave them our best guess and we were pleased with our attempts. Unfortunately there was no victory for either Beaufort teams in the end. of It was a truly delightful and beneficial experience and a great learning curve for all of us. Thanks to Ms. Larkin, Ms. Harding and Ms. Mc Andrew for accompanying us there.
