Lit Quiz

This year College Street competed for the first time ever in the Manawatu Kids’ Lit Quiz Heats.
The two College Street teams (College Street A and College Street B) were made up of Year 6 students:


Tom Brown
Madeleine James
Eilidh Mackay
Eva Mackenzie


Lachie Brownlie
Pippa Kaiser
Cici Sun
Holly Mason

How the Lit Quiz works:

You get 10 categories with 10 different questions in each. These were the categories:

  • Furniture

  • Glorious food
  • Hair
  • Kidnappers
  • Heroes
  • Journeys
  • Gods and Goddesses
  • Legends
  • Kings and Queens
  • Illustrators

Madeleine James, Eilidh Mackay and Tom Brown from College Street A, realising they had the correct answer

Kids from schools all across the Manawatu competed to answer the questions. In the bonus question round, they even gave out Whitcoulls vouchers, Stationery packs and $5.00 notes.

College Street A and College Street B tied, but still had to fight to the death to win the title of the best Year 6 team with a question about The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. College Street B answered the question quickly and correctly so they got rewarded four books.

Congratulations to Palmerston North Intermediate Normal A and B, who got 2nd and 3rd. But the big winners of the day were Ross Intermediate, who took home the title of the Manawatu champions, as well as a copy each of 1001 Questions & Answers About Absolutely Everything and they get to go to The Nationals down in Wellington! Fingers crossed they go to the Internationals in Toronto, Canada.

They also got a $160 cheque to spend on books and flights to Wellington.
So, as you can see, the Manawatu Kids’ Lit Quiz was a BIG success and to sign off, we say:
