Lucia and Grace represented St Clare’s in Porthcawl Library’s “Book Quiz”

On 8th March, Grace Munday and I (Lucia Quantick) went to Porthcawl Library for the Book Quiz.  We had to read The Garbage King by Elizabeth Laird. Mr Emanuel accompanied us. There were 5 schools competing; St Clare’s, West Park Primary, Porthcawl Primary, Nottage Primary and Newton Primary. When it was our turn, we were asked a series of questions. There were 20 questions and we got them all right! There were questions like “Who was the author?” and what food certain characters ate and how much money was spent etc. West Park Primary also got 20 right. The total scores were 16, 16 1/2, 19, 20 and 20.  There were 2 children from each school.  Since there was a tie, St Clare’s and West Park had 5 more questions.  We answered 4 out of 5 correctly and so did West Park! There was a joint win between us and West Park. We won a trophy and a prize which was a £10 gift voucher. We also had a goody bag which contained stationery and tickets to Heatherton.  We are very excited to go back and compete against West Park in the county finals!
