2020 Primary School Quiz
Primary Schools Quiz 2020:
On 18 January we held the Club Final at the Legion Hall in Dingwall. Twelve schools took part and everyone, teams and supporters, contributed to a lively, fun morning. The twelve schools were: Ardross. Avoch, Ben Wyvis, Bridgend, Culcbokie, Dingwall, Kiltearn, Marybank, Munlochy, Resolis, Strathpeffer and Tore. It was a a keenly fought contest and, as usual, everyone was impressed with the depth of knowledge exhibited by the young panellists. There can, however, be only one winner and top of the form, and winners for this year were the competitors from Munlochy Primary School with Avoch Primary running them a close second.
Munlochy, therefore, will becone one of the Club's representative at the Northern Area Final (Area 1) which will be hosted by Dingwall Rotary Club; again at the Legion Hall. Avoch, as runners-up, will also take part in thh Area 1 Final. Watch this space (or our Facebook page) for the date.
We must thank the Legion in Dingwall for providing a magnificent venue to host both of the Finals.
The Quiz involves 10 rounds of 6 questions in each round. With 2 points available to win on each question, a total of 120 points can be collected. The winning team today scored 98 points and the runner-up 96.
