Kids Lit Quiz – 8th November 2010

Report by Euan and Daniel

Today Mrs Macfadyen took four second years to Kilsyth Academy for the Kids Lit Quiz where a variety of schools from around Scotland came and answered questions on things in books from Greek mythology to donkeys. There were 10 rounds and each round had a different category to which there were 10 questions to be answered. There was a break where you could get juice and crisps and get an autograph from an author.

At the break, Our Lady’s were in first position but dropped to sixth as the quiz went on. We finished a respectable ninth position and came the top school in North Lanarkshire.

Additional report by Michael


At the 2010 Kids Lit quiz I accidentally let go of my dear friend Balloonie who was a balloon, but now I am happy as I replaced him with another balloon called Steve!

    From Michael
    I enjoyed it and I am so proud of us as we came 1st half-way through,yet i was sad to see Balloonie go and then Steve (the balloon I replaced him with) burst.
    But over all it was a Fabulous day!

  3. Mrs Macfadyen says:

    Can’t tell you how proud I am of you guys 🙂 You all did the school proud throughout the day: very cool and chilled at half time when you were leading (with everyone asking “Where’s Our Lady’s High School from?”); magnanimous and generous in defeat. We might not have won, but we came top in North Lanarkshire (and that’s a first!!)

    Highlights of the day:

    • a certain team member guessing the answer was Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious just from Wayne Mills saying “Which word has 34 letters and …” and winning the round;
    • another team member correctly guessing the answer was Pompeii because they’re actually researching the eruption of Vesuvius in Social Subjects;
    • watching the team’s faces when they guessed an answer right;
    • watching Balloonie soar o’er the hills of Kilsyth;
    • listening to everyone debating whether the host school be allowed to be a Health Promoting School because the Kids Lit Quiz was providing a certain Scottish orange coloured fizzy drink;
    • everyone singing the Perry the Platypus song on the way home!

    A brilliant day and the best ever OLHS result. Congratulations to all of you on some fabulous teamwork.

    Twas a gr8 day out and I really enjoyed competing against other schools. I would have loved to have done it again next year but I can’t! Ninth place is alright to finish but first is better.
    Big well done to Glasgow Academy A who won.
