Kids' Lit Quiz 2018
A group of Boswells School students took part in the East of England round of the Kids’ Lit Quiz and won several prizes.
The students, Anais Abrahams ,Zoya Ahmad ,Bobby Babbs , Chloe Edwards, Karin Ellwood , Daniel Hibbert ,Taimur Kazmi and Zaina Shaik enjoyed competing and were pleased with their performance as the top Chelmsford comprehensive school in the annual competition Eastern round.
However, the year 7 team would like to try again next year to beat their 8th out of 24 position as they felt they could learn from this year's experience.
Mrs Wilson commented ' It is a wonderful experience! We all came back enthused to read more. It is a brilliant idea to create a competition so students can represent the school on the sport of reading.'
