NORTH WEST ENGLAND

Hi Bloggers
The Kids' Lit Quiz had the honour tonight of being the first official event held in the new Social Learning Centre at Bolton University as it had only been opened three weeks ago by Prince Edward.
Lots of teams selected their jokers wisely and tonight's scores reflected their decisions. The winning team had never entered the quiz before but ended up winning quite convincingly. Lancaster Royal Grammar was an all-boys team and their win was well-deserved. Queen Katherine was second followed by Christelton High School.
Book prizes donated by Hachette were given to the winning teams by local author Philip Caveney.
Great results across the board-well done everyone.

Congratulations to Lancaster Royal Grammar on their high score last night. It just goes to show that you don't need boys and girls on the team. A big thank you to everyone who helped out, especially Philip Caveney and the University of Bolton. The venue was wonderful and the refreshments very welcome at the end of a long day. The schools who make the mammoth journey from Cumbria can be proud that they took 2nd and 3rd place.

Last night was our third year at the event and yet again the kids and the staff had a great time. It is really great to see so much enthusiasm for books and reading.

What a great evening we had - but actually it was Cockermouth School who came third!! An amazing breadth of literary knowledge was on display as usual. Our spectators were dying to answer the questions: time to bring an additional team, I think.

Thanks to Judith Sprawling for her organisation, to Bolton Uni for accommodating us and to Wayne for coming up with a mind-boggling selection of questions again to keep us all on our toes.

We had a fantastic time at the Kids Lit Quiz. We didn't win (kids really believed they would!) but it's all about being involved. The standard was really high, and the organisation was excellent. Well done Judith.
