*Update on Tuesday 4th February- our team scored 42 points out of 60, and finished 9th! In the top half of all the teams taking part- well done again!
On Monday we sent a team of 4 P6 pupils to the Edinburgh heat of the annual Euro Quiz event, held at City Chambers.
There were 4 rounds of questions on European geography, history, languages and culture, and our team acquitted themselves very well! They were enthusiastic and tried their absolute best, and quoting from the teacher from another school, who was marking their answers, “What a lovely group of children! They are a credit to your school.” The team have worked very hard to prepare for the quiz, and I couldn’t agree more.
We will find out our place in the quiz soon, so we’ll keep you posted once we find out. Although we didn’t win the heat, we had fun, and learned lots on the way! A fancy certificate and a shiny pen as a souvenirs is not to be sniffed at either!
Well done team!
