ROTARY PRIMARY SCHOOLS QUIZ 2016

The local heat of the Primary Schools Quiz 2016 was held on Monday 07 March 2016.  Throughout the country, over 500 schools will participate in this annual event and some 80 Rotary Clubs will support it.

Six local schools competed once again for two trophies  -  Canongate, Greyfriars, Kingsbarns, Lawhead, St Leonard’s and Strathkinness.  It was held in Greyfriars Roman Catholic Primary School (the 2015 champions) and, once again, it was very competitive with high scoring.

After six rounds of questions, Greyfriars again emerged the champions, retaining the trophy for a further year.  The runners up were Canongate Primary School who were presented with a Quaich.

As both The Rotary Club of St Andrews and the St Andrews Kilrymont Rotary Club were supporting the Quiz, these two schools will go forward to compete in the Area Final to be held on Monday 09 May 2016 in the Newport on Tay Church Hall, Blyth Street, Newport.

Rotarians from both Clubs attended and assisted with the Quiz as Quizmaster, Photographer, Judges and Scorer.  Their help was very much appreciated.  The President of the Rotary Club of St Andrews presented the trophies to the winning teams.
