New Zealand Post Quiz Night

On Monday night this week some of our book-loving year 9 and 10 students did battle in the annual New Zealand Post Quiz Night held at the Dunedin Public Library.  We were a little bit over-confident in our approach this year because a year ago one of our teams were the winners of this prestigious event, unfortunately we were beaten by better teams this year.  Winning is not everything however, and the guys (many of whom are core members of the BookGang) had a great time.

Here are some action shots of them thinking hard, and answering questions such as - Name three lakes in North America with answers such as "North America has lakes?"  and who is the female author of a particular book nominated as a finalist this year, with the interesting answer of  "Jane Austen"!  We intend to start 'hard out' training for next year very soon.

The teams were:  Year 10 - Reuben Hilder, Ali Aman, Ben Whitcombe and Chris Harbrow
Year 9 - Finn Armstrong -McAlister, Layne Kay, Mackenzie Corbett and Connor Duncan
