Silver success for OMS lit quizzers

Four teams of eager OMS bookworms competed in a Kids’ Lit Quiz event on Friday 7 June. 16 Year 7 and Year 8 pupils took part in the contest at Chantry Middle School, Morpeth, with several rounds of questions based around children’s literature.

Ovingham Team A – consisting of Year 8 pupils Lily, Alex, James and team captain Caitlin – took second place overall, from a field of well over 20 teams. While our A team excelled in taking the Silver position, all four Ovingham teams displayed great team spirit and showed off their knowledge of all things bookish.

A similar event (this time in Corbridge) is coming soon and the North East contest will be in November. We will be entering teams for those contests too. Well done to all the pupils who took part this time.DSCN1242
