ROTARY’S HIGH SCHOOLS QUIZ
Sent to C & B News for consideration June 2019
For years the Currie Balerno Rotary Club has organised an annual Primary Schools Quiz. This has been very successful and has proved popular with the schools and the participating teams. This year we decided to hold a quiz competition between the Balerno and Currie High Schools.
The competition was at the suggestion of Rotarian Percy Farren who arranged the event along with Rotarian Mike Latimer who has organised the Primary Schools Quiz from its inception.
The quiz was held at Currie High School on Tuesday 11 June. Twelve teams took part, two from each of the School Houses - Bavelaw, Cockburn, Malleny, Hermiston, Kinleith and Lennox - all under the supervision of members of the Rotary Club.
Kinleith House from Currie High School were the ultimate worthy winners after coming back from being behind at the half-way mark. Congratulations to the Kinleith winners, Dylan, Arran, Emily, Jamie, Toby, Lucy, Cameron and Eva.
The Rotarians were delighted to see the enthusiasm of the contestants. We look forward to Balerno High seeking to take their revenge when they host the competition next year.
