On Friday 21 May, eight students represented Somerville in the Auckland heats for the annual Kids Lit Quiz.

This was held at St Cuthbert’s College over a period of three hours, with over fifty teams entered. There were ten themed rounds to the quiz, and Quizmaster, Wayne Mills, lived up to his reputation by asking very challenging questions. Tricky categories included Aviation, Forests and Manga. 

The Somerville teams consisted of: Charlotte Hutton, Lochlan Moon, Ella Haschick, Inaaya Dhar (Team 1) and Reshmi Abhyankar, Haeni Jung, Rehmat Gill and Ariana Hayward (Team 2).

Everyone had prepared long and hard for this big day, spending weekly morning teas practising and reading as much as they could in their spare time. We were very proud of their efforts and everyone had a fantastic day!
