Winners of the Christchurch South Lit Quiz competition!

On Thursday 18 August, two teams from Springston School travelled to Somerfield School to compete in the annual quiz. The teams had been reading and training for the quiz since the beginning of Term 2. There were twelve books to read and learn; 6 novels and 6 picture books. The two teams chose their names and made team flags that were judged on the night. Our teams were called Shot, Boom, Read! and 6 Red Reading Hoods. Team members were; Gemma, Aria, Adele, Molly, Toby and Georgia; Rosie, Sonya, Joseph, Lucy, Darcie and Xanthe, Estelle, Brigid and Deklyn.

The questions were on the text and the pictures and there were ten questions on each book.

Mrs P was the question reader. There were 3 minutes to write down the answers to each set of questions. The scores were given at the end of Round 3 and Round 8 and then not again until the end. We had a guest speaker, Soraya Nicholas, who spoke about how she became an author, what books she had written and then she read some of her latest story. Later Soraya signed bookmarks for the children and one lucky school won a set of her Starlight Stables books.

Then the winners were announced. Oakland Geniuses were 3rd, Somerfield’s Phenomenal Readers 2nd and our Shot, Boom Read! won by 4 points! Our 6 Red Reading Hoods were 5th out of the 21 teams competing.

Each member of the team got to choose their own book prize and were presented with the trophy. As winners we get to be hosts again next year. 

This is the third year in a row we have won. Well done to our Springston Lit Quiz Team and our fantastic Librarian - Karen Winter!

Springston Cricket XI Victory Over Tai Tapu

Jack Brent scored a century as Springston wracked up a huge total of 219 for 3 in just 20 overs of batting. Tai Tapu replied with 173 for 7 but never looked like overtaking the huge total. Well done lads and good luck in the next round!
