The Sport of reading

Posted on: 02/12/2014

40 teams from the South West were competing at Tavistock College for a place in the UK final Quizmaster, Wayne Mills inspired the students to read widely.  He highlighted the young world famous New Zealand singer and song-writer, Lorde, who competed in the Kids Lit Quiz herself, with much success. She cites wide reading as a lyrical influence... you can never have too many words! 

Both Torrington teams won a set of books for top score rounds from the ten quiz categories:  Animals, Colours, Cartoons, Disabilities, Elephants, Males, Middle Earth, Mythical Beings, Occupations and Settings.  In a very closely fought contest we were just a few points behind the winning team from Truro Prep School who scored 70.  

Well done to our students for representing GTS so well, our parent supporters and to Robert Hemsworth who won a book voucher.
