Drapeaux des Etats membre de l'Union européenne à 28 pays et drapeau européen (au 1er juillet 2013)

The annual Edinburgh heat of ‘EuroQuiz’ was held at the City Chambers this week.

19 teams from schools across Edinburgh met to battle it out for a place in the national EuroQuiz final, later this year.

Our team of P6 pupils- Alex Aliyev, Aidan Edgcombe, Marc French and Alex Moir represented the school, and had a great time answering a range of questions about European geography, history, culture and sports. Sadly, we didn’t win the heat, but the boys were great ambassadors for our school- they were enthusiastic, and truly did their best. Update- Friday 24th March-We found out this week that we finished 10th!

The team have been working hard since November, completing extra homework tasks, and swotting up their knowledge of European flags,capitals and maps. They’ve also had to try and memorise speciifc facts about the EU, currencies and important European figures.

They may not have won, but in preparing for the event they have certainly developed their research and memory skills, and earned 10 house points each!

Well done team!
