2019 Primary School Quiz
The Kiltearn Primary School Team. Winners of the Dingwall Club Final and the Area 1(N Scotland) Final
Primary Schools Quiz 2019:
On 12 February we held the Club Final at the Legion Hall. Nine schools took part and everyone, teams and supporters, contributed to a lively, fun evening. The nine schools were: Avoch, Bridgend, Culcbokie, Dingwall Kiltearn, Marybank, Munlochy, Resolis, and Tore. It was a a keenly fought contest and, as usual, everyone was impressed with the depth of knowledge exhibited by the young panellists. There can, however, be only one winner and top of the form, and winners for this year were the competitors from Kiltearn Primary School with Dingwall Primary running them a close second.
Kiltearn, therefore, was the Club's representative at the Northern Area Final (Area 1) which was held on the 9th March; again at the Legion Hall. Four schools took part, Kiltern Dornoch, Portree and ?? The other three schools represented the Rotary Clubs of East Sutherland, Portree and District and Tain. It was another close contest, but Kiltearn rose to the challenge to win by a narrow margin. They will now represent, not only our own Dingwall Club, but all 10 clubs within Area 1, at the N Scotland Final in Aberdeen on 18th May. The winners will then progress to the 'All Scotland' Final on 22 June at Stirling.
We must thank the Legion in Dingwall for providing a magnificent venue to host both of the Finals.
