Lit Quiz Team 2021 - 2nd Place

Our Lit Quiz team of Ruby Lund, Lachie Thompson, Sam Holborow and Ariana Geddis did exceptionally well this year, in a very high scoring Regional contest against 28 other teams. They led for 7 of the 10 rounds, when Tahuna 1 drew level with them. There they stayed, neck and neck, until the final round where they were beaten by one point. To do well with the questions this year our students needed a wide and varied knowledgebase, something it was obvious they had. They were each pleased to come away with $20 and a $5 Whitcoulls voucher. The ice-creams on the way back to school were pretty nice too. Congratulations team.
