Cockermouth Kids’ Lit Team UK Champs

Kids Lit Champs

The Kids’ Lit Quiz team from Cockermouth School has struck gold again by winning the UK final against the best 15 teams from around the country. Winning by just 2 points, they have been invited to Durban to take part in the World Final next July where they will go head to head against the best teams from New Zealand, Canada, the USA, Australia and South Africa. This is the first time the Quiz has been won twice by a state school and it is a fantastic achievement for the youngsters.  ‘I am thrilled and so proud of the students’ triumph,’ said Mr Walker.  ‘Many congratulations to the youngsters and Mrs Farrar, our Librarian and Kids’ Lit Team coach.’ The youngsters are starting a fundraising campaign to raise the money for their fares to the competition in South Africa.
