Twenty one schools participated in the Kids Lit Quiz in Belfast this year with the quiz master again being Wayne Mills, who comes from New Zealand every year to host the quiz at Wellington College.

The format of the quiz meant that there were one hundred questions asked, with them being split into ten rounds with ten questions asked per round. The questions were based on children’s literature.

This year St Paul’s had two teams entered, one team represented Year 8 and another represented Year 9.

The students that represented Year 8 were Mairead Campbell, Katie Burns, Sarah Kilgallon and Fionntan Evans and the students that represented Year 9 were Amy O’Hanlon, Aimee McAllister, Jay Murphy and Niall Campbell. The teams were accompanied by the school librarian Mrs Morgan and and English teachers Miss McClinton and Mrs Campbell.

This year the winners were Methody College Belfast and they now go on to represent Northern Ireland in the UK finals in Coventry. The winners from the UK final will represent the UK in the world final in Durban, South Africa.

St Paul’s did happen to pick up an award as Amy O’Hanlon’s inspired Hunger Games idea ‘Katniss Everdeen‘ meant the teams went on to collect the BEST MASCOT award.
