TCS students amongst the smartest problem solvers in Ireland
For the second year in a row, students from Tallaght Community School participated in the All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad. In the first week of February, 33 TCS students worked their way through Round 1 paper of the competition. They were among 1267 students from secondary schools all over Ireland (North and South) who competed for the title of smartest language decoder in Ireland. The Linguistics Olympiad is a problem-solving competition which challenges students to test their minds against complex problems in logic, language and linguistics. Well done to all our students who took the challenge during the two hour exam!
The top 100 students are invited to attend the All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad final, to be held at Dublin City University in Glasnevin on March 24th. A record number of seven students from Tallaght Community School have qualified to participate in this year’s AILO final. Congratulations to Michal Grudzien (who achieved joint 5th place), Kasper Kluza, Adam Nolan, James O’Brien, Darren Scanlon, Ciara Walsh and Aishling Whelan. They will join the other All Ireland finalists in DCU. We wish them the best of luck!
The Linguistics Club meets once every week (currently Thursday lunchtime in Room 110). Come along if you enjoy solving puzzles, have an interest in language and want to take part in next year‘s Linguistics Olympiad!
