Kids' Lit Quiz World Finals 2015 won by Southwell School Hamilton

Well done Southwell School Hamilton

The Southwell team with Wayne Mills after their New Zealand win at National Library earlier this year
They are the winners of the World Final of the Kids’ Lit Quiz held last week in Connecticut, USA
The team had been trained by Julie Huggins - who went over for the competition - and Gerri Judkins both from Southwell School.
Hours and hours (and hours) of work and training had gone into this including fund raising by the children, the1000 books read between them to say nothing of the adults who trained them. 

And an even bigger congratulations to Wayne Mills Quizmaster (Google his name!) who began the whole concept back in 1991.

The final results were:
1st: New Zealand: Southwell School 
South Africa: Manor Gardens 
USA: Sedgwick School
