Waikato Kids Lit Quiz 2018

 12th !!!

A team of students competed last Tuesday at the Waikato Lit Quiz Competition They were Finn McD, Jack E, Sophie P and Lauren G. 
All year they have given up one and sometimes two lunchtimes to train  with me in the library. They have also read many books and read widely, as well as completing many quizzes in their own time at home.
There were 10 categories on the night with 10 questions in each category. Nobody knows what the categories are before the night, so that makes training difficult.
On the night there were 52  teams competing  With Jack being the only team member to have competed before and Finn being a year 6 the odds were stacked against them.
However they did an outstanding job and finished 12th of the 52 teams competing. Taking into consideration that many of the teams get chosen from schools with over 20 year 6/7/8 classrooms they did a fantastic job  finishing where they did in the competition.
They can be very proud of they way they competed and the wonderful way they represented Te Pahu School. I know I was proud of them.

Well done from Mrs Kewish
