This year for the first time there will be a South Canterbury heat for New Zealand Kids' Lit Quiz. The Kids' Lit Quiz is a celebration of books and reading. Teams of four students work together to answer 100 book-related questions over 10 rounds. The quiz is open to year 6, 7 & 8 and will take place on Tuesday 28th March at Waihi School.
Over the past two weeks we have had 13 students trying out for the Barton team. Congratulations to Halayna, Liam, Jai, Neave and Lucy who have made the team. Today at Lunchtime we had our first practice and if it was anything to go by we will have many fun practise sessions. We have decided to select five students for the team in case of one member being unable to attend. The final team will be announced just prior to the quiz with the reserve also able to attend the quiz as a spectator.
