Today, two Christchurch South teams competed in the regional Kids Lit Quiz at Cobham Intermediate. Sixty-seven teams from all over Canterbury arrived ready to put their knowledge of books and literature to the test. The aim of the competition to answer correctly as many literature-related questions as possible from a wide range of categories. Some of this year's categories included  Animals, Books into Movies, Castles, Characters from Legends, Colours and even Death! The competition was challenging and involved a tiebreaker final! After a nail-biting re-count of scores, the South Year 7 team achieved a hard-won second place losing to the first place getters by half a point. This result winning them a place in the New Zealand final in Wellington in June. Congratulations also to the Year 8 team who placed a very creditable 9th.
