Wellington College hosted the NI heat of the Kids’ Lit Quiz on Tuesday the 12th of November. 26 teams from 22 schools in Northern Ireland took part. It was a bookish celebration and an occasion of competitive fun. The book guru, New Zealand quizmaster Wayne Mills, asked challenging questions over ten rounds.

Enniskillen Royal Grammar School were there to defend their title and vanquished the competition again. Methody and Sullivan Upper were placed 2nd and 3rd. In a dramatic race the Year 8 team from Wellington held on to 4th place before dropping to 8th as other teams played their Jokers. The Year 9s came 10th. Both teams thoroughly enjoyed the event.

Running alongside the main quiz, contestants and supporters had the opportunity to showcase their imaginative, artistic and creative writing talents by vying for top Mascot, Manga Artist, Best dressed and Book Wanderers’ prizes.
