On Tuesday, two teams of students from Seaford Prep School took part in the Kid’s Lit. Quiz, the world’s only global literature competition, which this year was held at Duke of Kent School in Surrey. More than 20 schools took part from all over the South East. Our Year 7 team came ninth overall so didn’t qualify for the national final but did come away with some new books, which they won in a special bonus round. All the students had a great afternoon and came away even more enthused by “the sport of reading”.
The Seaford pupils who competed were Sam French, Marcus Fairweather and Henry Thompson (all Year 8), and Max Rogerson, Henry Grantham-Smith and Eliott Emslie from Year 7. This is the fourth year the College has entered the not-for-profit competition, which also stages events in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa and the USA. It was launched in 1991 with the aim of acknowledging, motivating and rewarding young students for their reading.
