There were unparalleled levels of excitement in our office last Thursday (4th December) as our team discovered that Norfolk’s own Litcham School had been crowned the winners of the UK heat of the 2014 Kids Lit Quiz! The news trickled in through twitter and we were so pleased to hear of their success- it couldn’t have been awarded to a nicer team; their 12-point lead at our Norfolk heat a few weeks before had meant that we were all hoping they would go far! According to reports from the event which took place at King’s College Wimbledon, the overall winner was decided in the final round- so it was close! Litcham’s team were awarded a plethora of prices, including a trophy and of course an invitation to attend the International final in 2015.
We wish the team, along with their Librarian, Cathy Berry, a hearty congratulations- we bet they’re suitably elated and already looking forward to the prospect of a possible trip to the USA for the Final taking place in Connecticut next Summer!
Quiz master Wayne’s account of the Final can be found over on the official Kids’s Lit Quiz blog here.
