Quizzicals - Meg, Zoe, Zack & Joseph and
Factoids - Laura, India, Miguel & Rory.
They competed against teams of Yr7-8 and Yr9-10 students from other local intermediate and secondary schools hoping to finish in the top three and win book vouchers of $50, $75 or $100 for the school. Both teams worked hard and urgent whispering could often be heard from them and the other teams during the question rounds. Questions covered a range of topics including geography, national flags, current events, advertising logos, books and general knowledge. You could get an idea of how the teams were going by the number of quiet cheers of success versus groans of disappointment there were as the answers to a round of questions were read out! When the final placings were announced we learned the Factoids had placed 5th while the Quizzicals had finished in 2nd place just 2 points behind the winning team from Upper Valley Middle School. Well done teams!
|Congratulations to the Quizzicals.|
Teachers, librarians and parents who attended with the teams were also able to take part in the quiz and our team - which included Mrs Thompson & myself from St Brendan's as well as others from Heretaunga College, Fergusson Intermediate and Upper Valley Middle School - finished ahead of the team of librarians from Upper Hutt Library!
