Yesterday, we hosted the East Midlands heat of the annual 'Kids Lit Quiz'. We were joined by over 70 students from schools across Cheshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Sheffield, competing for a coveted place in the National Final. Lady Manners School entered two teams: from Year 7 and Year 8. Our Year 8 team got off to a flying start, winning the first round (and a set of books, presented to them by a Carnegie medal-winning author). As the competitors settled in, our Year 7 team found their feet, winning the penultimate round (and another set of books). Both teams performed very strongly against stiff competition, our Year 8 team claiming fourth place and Year 7 joint ninth position out of the 21 teams competing. Congratulations to Highfields School who took the title for the second year running. A good time was had by all – a particular highlight being the cakes, provided in part by our Library staff.
