Ella Dickens, Sabrina Romero Mittelstaedt, Alanna Santoso, James Karl, Kayleigh Pieters, Daniel Avis, Sean Wang and Novyna Tolentino will represent the school in this competition.

Kids’ Lit Quiz is an annual international event open to keen readers aged 10-13. Competitors work their way up through the categories of regional, national, all the way to the international showdown. Schools can submit up to 2 teams of 4 students each. The quiz is split into 10 categories of 10 questions, all based on literature. Category topics have ranged from furniture, to hair, to cats.

This competition is a great opportunity for all young readers from Hong Kong, South Africa, the UK, America, Australia, Canada, Singapore, and of course, New Zealand. These lucky students are able to test their literary prowess, travel to exciting international locations and win awesome prizes.

We wish the best of luck to the teams put forward by Sancta Maria College this year!
