We had a 50% increase with the number of schools partipating in today's heat and this may even have been greater if some schools had not had to withdraw because of Armistice services. The team of St Thomas of Acquins B had not won before so they were delighted to win today's heat. In second place was George Heriots B and in third place was George Heriots A. Remarkably only a point separated each team. All the schools were challenged by a team of authors ( Linda Strachan, Matt Cartney and Keith Charters), a librarian's team and a teacher's team. Todays prizes were sponsored by Scotia Books- this company is a big supporter of the Kids' Lit Quiz in Scotland. The banner competition was won by Blawearie High School. Thank you Mrs Babbs and Liberton High School.
