On Thursday 14 November Mrs Michelle Morgan, School Librarian, our quiz team and Miss McClinton from the English Department travelled to Wellington College in Belfast for the Annual Kids Lit Quiz hosted by Wayne Mills. There were twenty eight teams from every county in Northern Ireland represented on the day. Killicomaine were the worthy winners by a considerable margin and go on to the UK finals next year.

We all enjoyed meeting Irish authors Niall De Búrca and Derek Kielty and visiting the Scholastic Book Fair.

A great afternoon was had by all and we were proud to take the trophy for the Best School Mascot for the second year in a row! The mascot was based on the Carnegie Medal winning book, Maggot Moon.

We also entered the Best Fictional Character Competition with Bianca Hughes and Sarah McManus as Thing 1 and Thing 2 from The Cat in the Hat.
