Kids Lit Quiz 2013

After fierce competition in the Library, twelve S1 pupils set off for Kilsyth Academy last week for the West of Scotland heat of the Kids Lit Quiz, a worldwide competition all about books and stories. Answering questions from on everything from fairy tales and picture books to Young Adult and classic novels, the two teams of four had a lot to cope with, but worked well together to build up impressive scores, while our stalwart supporters in the audience waved banners, cheered the teams on, and whispered answers to each other.

The event ran like clockwork, with ten rounds of ten questions, interspersed with prize challenges for the audience (including two wins for OLHS!) At the interval, each pupil purchased a book and ran to get it signed by their respective author. Two lucky pupils who chose Viking Gold even received a real Viking coin from author, V Campbell!
