was held on March 5th 2019. The winning team, Airyhall Primary School, Aberdeen are pictured with their trophy.
Five local Primary Schools in the Aberdeen Deeside area battled it out to go through to the next round of the Rotary Primary Schools Quiz competition.
Teams of 4 pupils each tackled 60 questions, 6 questions per round, on a range of topics- Alphabet, Natural World, History, Human Body, Geography, Mathematics, Literature, Technology, Sport, Media.
All teams performed exceptionally well with very high scores across all schools, but at the end of ten rounds Airyhall and Cults were in joint first place with 107 points. That meant a tie breaker was required to decide the winner. With tensions high and gasps from the audience the scores were still level after an exciting tie breaker. The winner was eventually decided after a sudden death knockout and Airyhall primary were triumphant winners by one point over Cults primary
The winning team Airyhall primary will now go on to compete in the Area heat of the Rotary District 1010 Competition to be held on Saturday 28th April hosted by Rotary Club of Stonehaven.
