Ruby Cammerman, Pema Inman, Oliver Dacre and Roxanna Medley competed in the Kids Lit Quiz Australian Finals on Friday 3 May. This was a fabulous achievement for our students, who were one of 11 teams from a national pool of 250 teams to make it to the final.
Hosted by the State Library of NSW, our Indro Team put forward a strong challenge, finishing in fifth place. The competition required teams to answer five rounds of 13 questions, all related to children’s literature. From authors’ names, novel openings to fictional cities, our students competed with confidence, showcasing their incredible insight into literature. Following the competition the students toured Sydney, enjoying a visit to Books Kinokuniya.
It was here that our students enjoyed walking the endless rows of inspiring books and everyone left with a treasured novel to take home. Thank you to Mrs Harrison and the Library staff for their efforts organising this wonderful experience and for their ongoing commitment to literature for children and adolescents.
We congratulate the students on their fantastic effort and look forward to next year’s competition.
