19 teams of Senior Cycle students from 14 different schools in County Cork took part in the French quiz organised in Presentation Brothers College Cork by the Cork branch of the French Teachers’ Association on Monday 10th February 2020.

Well done to Ms Merrick, Ms O’Brien and Ms Broderick whose students won this year.
