This afternoon after school at Bluestone School Hall there was some serious reading knowledge on display as 4 teams from Beaconsfield battled it out with 30 other teams from schools from all over the district, from Waimate over to Fairlie. There were 7 rounds altogether, on subjects such as NZ Authors, Classics, Families, Animals and Pets, and including the nerve-testing Who am I? round where points diminish the more clues you need to find the answer (all of our teams got 4/5 on that, it was Roald Dahl).
Our teams showed great team spirit and appeared to have fun representing Beaconsfield (I will ask them more about that next week!). They did really well, answering some tough questions, and although we did not get any placings we can be proud of their efforts. The Beaconsfield 2 Year 7/8 team deserve a special mention for coming 4th out of the 19 teams in their section. Well done all of you! Thank you also to your parents for getting you there and home again.
