Kid's Lit Quiz

On Friday Jahna, Philippa, Oliver and Freddie represented our school at the Kid's Lit Quiz held at Cobham Intermediate School. Approximately 47 teams from all around Canterbury competed. Ten sets of ten questions on a variety of topics were asked, with each team choosing a 'double points' topic.

While the marking was happening spot prizes were given out for answering questions; the audience won book prizes and the children $5 cash, well done Oliver!

The team marks for the different sections were, Ages 6, Alias's 6, Beasts 8, Classics 7, Colours 4, Construction 5, Extra Terrestials 5, Hats 6, Islands 8 and XL 7.

1st place went to Cobham on 83 points followed by Chisnalwood 1 82, Cathedral Grammer 2 81 - a very close competition. Our team finished on 62 points about 16th place.

Well done team, our best effort yet, can't wait until next year! Anyone can try out for the team, it is open to Years 6, 7 & 8. Start reading now!
