Eleven pupils, accompanied by Librarian, Mrs Macfadyen, and Mr Kerr from the English Department, headed for Cumbernauld for this year’s West of Scotland heats of the Kids Lit Quiz.
Our two teams worked through ten rounds of questions about children’s literature, covering all genres from fairy tales to legends to classics to picture books. Meanwhile our subs cheered them on from the audience, even winning audience prizes!
Our teams also had great support from Library mascots, Brian the Brain and Angus the Ape, each carrying their school scarves of course! Sadly we didn’t win (although we were in 4th place at the interval which was exciting), but we had a wonderful time, got some great books signed by the author teams and are making plans for improving on our placing next year.
Many thanks to Ebony Bollard, Emily Cuthbert, Rachel Donnelly, Kayla Harbinson, Sam Kidd, Dominik Pradzynski, Raymond Ron, Ciara Scullion, Wiktor Witkowski, Neve Connelly and Matthew Bell.
