Thailand Kid’s Lit Quiz
On Thursday 12 students from years 6, 7 and 8 went to Bangkok Patana School to represent Green Valley in the first ever Thailand Kid’s Lit Quiz. The Lit quiz is a world wide competition held each year where teams compete to answer questions based on children’s literature. The final this year will be held in Singapore in July. The standard was exceptionally high and the three teams from Green Valley fared very well in a highly competitive environment with one team winning the round entitled ‘teenagers’- all about teenage characters in novels. They each won a 300 baht voucher (to be spent on books, obviously…).
Our most successful team made it through to the grand final. They held the lead for the first two rounds before finally being beaten at the final hurdle, eventually finishing a very respectful third overall. Each team member took home a trophy and a medal. The quiz master challenged the students to read 52 books before next year’s competition, where hopefully we can finish one or two places higher!
