Well, that's the first regional heat completed in my busy schedule and what a slick night it was. Everything ran like clockwork and I cannot thank those that marked, entered the scores and collected the papers enough. My thanks to the Borders staff who came along and asssisted with the marking your dedication was appeciated.
Special thanks to tonight's sponsor Macmillan who provided the prizes and Gosforth Central Middle School in Newcastle for providing the excellent venue
The quiz was won convincingly by Cockermouth School followed by last year's winning school Durham Johnston then half a point behing them was Durham High School.
Lovely too having an audience of parents, grandparents and librarian/coaches to lend their support.
Look out for a heat near you.
