Primary School Quiz 2016
West Fife schools local PSQ competition in Crossford PS 16 March. Progressing now to Aberdeen for District Finals
Fiona Spriddle, and Neil attended the Zone Final of the Primary School Quiz at Donibristle Primary School on 3rd May 2016 in support of the team from Crossford Primary School, who won our Club final for the third consecutive year back in March.
After a keenly contested and exciting quiz, after the final round 3 teams were tied at the head of the leaderboard, one of which was Crossford ! A tie break round was then contested between the 3 leading teams, and Crossford emerged from this round with a clear 4 point winning margin. A sudden death question was required to determine the runner up, which was Dalgety Bay Primary School.
Crossford and Dalgety Bay move on to the District Final at the Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen on Saturday 18th June. There was great excitement among the winning team, parents and teachers and it was exciting for us as I think this is the first time a team has emerged from our Club final to the District final.
Neil intends to attend the District Final later this month
The Rotary Club of West Fife Primary Schools Quiz 2016 involved eight local schools – Camdean, Carnock, Culross, Saline, Cairneyhill, McLean, Torryburn and hosts Crossford. The competition was keenly contested but the Natural World round proved to be the decisive of the ten rounds. Crossford pulled away from the others in that round and held out to score 110 and win by ten points. Joint runners up all on 100 points were Cairneyhill, McLean and Torryburn.
The winning Crossford team was made up by Matthew 1, Matthew 2, Jenny , Lewis and reserve Cara and they will progress to the area finals.
