Kids' Lit Quiz 2018

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.'

The Kids' Lit Quiz is an annual literature quiz for students aged 10 - 13 years.

Quizzes are held in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Indonesia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, United Kingdom and USA.

The winning team from each heat competes in a National Final. National champions compete in the World Final which will be in Singapore in 2019.

The quiz was founded by New Zealand quizmaster Wayne Mills, who reads enough books to write several thousand questions each year.
