Kids’ Lit Quiz competition came to the Gold Coast three years ago and is now firmly established as one of the regional heats for this global competition. Students who compete need to be avid readers as questions are drawn from a wide range of literature.

Heats are held throughout the world with the finals to be held in Singapore in 2019.

2019 - T1 - W8 - Kids' Lit Quiz

This year Somerset had three teams in the Gold Coast heat. Participants were selected based on interest and came from Years 5 and 6. They faced tough competition from Year 7 and 8 student teams from as far north as Bundaberg. Despite this, the girls competed well, answering questions from fairy tales, nursery rhymes, historical novels, non-fiction and fiction, movies of books, superheroes and cartoons, old and new!

Some Somerset participants came home with cash for answering questions on the go, and one team won a book each for scoring the highest in a specific category.

On the eve of Storyfest, it was a timely reminder of the wonderful opportunities our students have experienced over the years, which I am sure have contributed to their love of literature.
