A popular and competitive inter-primary quiz; ‘Excited for English’ was held at Mount Carmel High School following on from the ‘Mad 4 Maths’ quiz held in the Autumn term.
The annual quiz is organised by Mount Carmel and hosted by the English department. The team from St. Mary’s fought off competition from another 10 primary school teams to win the title.
Initial rounds took place in Mount Carmel’s school hall and included an author crossword challenge, a conundrum challenge and an interactive Harry Potter comprehension round using tablet computers. The pupils were then tasked to solve clues to a challenge in the newly refurbished school library.
A ‘Spelling Bee’ round on the school stage was a tense climax to the quiz with a representative from each team taking up the challenge.
A ‘Crazy for Science’ quiz is due to take place at Mount Carmel in February to complete the inter-primary challenges for the year.
