On Sunday, June 10th, four eager and excited Year 7 students travelled to Wellington to compete in the NZ Kids Lit final. Sixteen teams from all around New Zealand gathered to test their knowledge and skills about children's literature. The competition was made up of 75 questions in five categories ranging from knowledge of types of books to how well did they remember the text from the first page of a novel.
After five rounds the South team placed third equal and was again thrust into a sudden death playoff. The tension was immense and the final result for our team was a very creditable fourth. What a great effort!
