This year's Kids Lit Quiz saw two teams from Christchurch South Karamata competing against 48 other teams from around Canterbury for the honour of being this year's kids lit champions for Canterbury. Each team's knowledge of children's literature was tested over 10 rounds intended to challenge even the most confident and well-read teams. Question categories included Horses, Hybrid Animals, Jacks, Manga and a visual category on Literature Knowledge. 

As always the competition was fierce and after five rounds the Number 2 team was well placed. The second half of the competition was tense with all teams striving for success. As the final results were announced, the CSKI number 2 Team of Eve, Lilah, Lucy-Mei and Mormor took out the top spot and will travel to Wellington in June to compete in the New Zealand final.  Congratulations also to the CSKI Number 1 team who gained a very credible 8th placing. Both South teams represented the school with excellence and can be very proud of their achievement.
