‘WOOO, YEAH, AWESOME!!!!!!’ All the kids in the chapel at St Paul’s Collegiate cheered because they got the first question in the alieus section right. It was the night of Lit Quiz and 4-8 kids from schools all around the Waikato had joined together on the 16th of May, to do the International Kids Lit Quiz. Kids Lit Quiz is a competition for kids all around the world who are really good at reading. It is a fun competition and kids and Adults both enjoy it because adults get to win prizes as well as the kids. So anyway we were sitting there with big toothy grins on our faces because we had finished hearing the answers for the alieus section and we had a pretty good score.
The night went by fast but we got pretty good scores in alieus, constructions, authors, myths and legends and pop culture. We had 2 Melville Intermediate School groups there and my group, (group 2) bet the other team, we came 27th out of 54 schools and our overall score was 52 out of 100.
