We had a wonderfully exciting finish to the UK Final. Can you believe it two teams tied for first and two teams tied for second. I couldn't have written a more exciting script had I tried. Both sudden death play-offs went to the wire. The winner was Cockermouth School and in second place was Bristol Grammar. The good news was that the NZ organisers for the 2oth KLQ International Final invited both teams to NZ so although these two teams tied they both qualified for New Zealand. The play-off for third and fourth was between Glasgow High School and Litcham High School. The eventual third-placed team was Litcham. Glasgow High was fourth.
The event was strongly supported by authors, librarians, teachers, students and parents and the whole day was a huge success.Thank you everybody for supporting this year's heats and final.
Bye for now until next year
