On Monday 14th May, nine students represented Somerville at the annual Kids' Lit Quiz, Auckland heat.

This was held at St Cuthbert's College over a period of three hours, with sixty teams entered.

 

There were ten themed rounds to the quiz, and Quizmaster, Wayne Mills, lived up to his reputation by asking very challenging questions. One category was dedicated entirely to squirrels in literature.

 

The Somerville teams consisted of: Asher Saunders, Alicia Walmsley, Lydia Anderson, Rory Gambolati, Harry Shi, Orlando Ye, Padme Yump, and Jack Cutler, with Josh Little as our reserve.

Everyone had prepared long and hard for this big day, and had a fantastic time. King's College won the heat and will be entering the national competition in Wellington.
