On Tuesday the 6th of November 2018 Wellington College hosted the 13th annual Northern Ireland heat of the prestigious global Kids' Lit Quiz. 29 teams from 25 schools across NI assembled in WCB's sports' hall to battle for top reading honours. The victors were Enniskillen Royal Grammar School who will be travelling to London to compete in the National Final. Runners up were Banbridge Academy and Sullivan Upper.

Wellington students acquitted themselves well coming 11th and 13th in a tough competition. The atmosphere was festive with a colourful fancy dress book character competition won by a Red Riding Hood tableau, fairy tale themed artwork with the top prize, judged by storyteller guest Patrick Ryan, going to a Hansel and Gretel poster entry and the fantasy mascot win to Killicomaine Junior High with Gandalf.
