Students from Broxbourne attended the North London heat of the international Kids' Lit Quiz

Ten students from The Broxbourne School attended the North London heat of the Kids' Lit Quiz at Arnold's House School on 26 November 2014.

The international competition is for pupils in Years 7 and 8 who are divided into teams of 4 and tested on their knowledge of children's literature.  The quizmaster, Wayne Mills, travelled from New Zealand to conduct sixteen heats in the UK, before venturing around the world to find the ultimate champions.

Mrs Shaper (Library Resource Director) accompanied the children and expressed her delight at one of the school's teams coming third in the heat.  Mikey Landowski-Spray, Julia Mazine, Nadia Lines and Jacob Millward excelled in rounds on 'Middle Earth' and 'Comics', although they were less successful on 'Elephants'.  The winners were the defending world champions, City of London School for Girls.
