Primary Schools Quiz

Thu, Mar 21st 2024 at 2:23 pm - 4:23 pm

Organised by Kilrymont RC but assisted by St Andrews RC


A  number of local primary schools gathered at Greyfriars PS on Thursday 21st March to compete in the annual Primary Schools' Quiz organised by Kilrymont St Andrews Rotary Club. As always the participants competed with enthusiasm and determination as they answered questions which many adults would have found very challenging.


St Leonards established an early lead which they fought hard to maintain until the very last round, when Lawhead PS with a final spurt managed to snatch victory by a single point. Both schools will go forward to the next round.

This event was great fun, very enjoyable and a real success. 

Well done to everybody taking part.
