Carnegie Quiz

We were very pleased to welcome Year 7 and 8 pupils from Kingsdale School, Allyens, JAGs and Elm Green who joined us for a Friday afternoon quiz based on books shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal. Schools and Year groups were mixed to create teams named after characters in the shortlisted books. It was great to see the students putting their heads together and sharing their views and a gripping contest resulted in a two team tie after the final round, but team Evelyn won the tiebreaker and were crowned champions. Special mention should go to all those who submitted alternative book covers, with congratulations to the winners, whose designs really were outstanding. Following the quiz we voted for our favourite book with the winner being The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo which has also been announced as the actual winner of this year's Carnegie Medal.
