Herzlichen Glückwunsch! Thank you to the German and Austrian Embassies, the Goethe Institut, Lidl Midleton, Siemens, the Post Primary Language Initiative, etwinning and Léargas for their support and generosity providing prizes. Proceeds of the quiz will go to the Mercy Hospital Cork and Kieran O’Connor Fund. German teachers Ms. Henry and Ms. Twomey would like to also express their gratitude to the TY students of German and staff in Midleton College and St. Vincent’s Secondary School, Cork. Without their hard work and dedication this would not have been possible. A true team effort!
