Newport Primary School's P7s quiz team held on to an early lead to win North Fife Rotary's 2016 Primary School Quiz quiz recently at Gauldry Village Hall.
Wormit, Tayport, and Balmerino Primary Schools (who placed 2nd, 3rd, and 4th respectively) provided some very tough competition throughout to ensure it wasn't an easy victory. However, Newport's team held their nerve and will now go on to represent the whole of North Fife at the Rotary area competition on Monday 9th May in Newport-on-Tay Church Hall.
Barbara Robertson, President of North Fife Rotary Club added, "The performances by all the teams was just outstanding this year, with the scores so close that any of the teams could have won it right to the last round of questions. I'd like to encourage everyone who can to come along and show their support for the Newport Primary School team when they face their peers from all over Fife and Tayside on the 9th April. We're very fortunate to be hosting it right here in Newport this year as it's always a fun event, so it's a good opportunity for anyone in our community to come along, enjoy watching the quiz, and cheer on our local team. Though having seen Newport's performance last week I'm certain they don't need any home team advantages to deliver another outstanding performance!"
The winner of the area competition on the 9th May will go on to represent the area at the Rotary Primary School Quiz district finals take place in Aberdeen later in the year. Entry to all events is free.
