Team Oakhill 2nd in National Lit Quiz

Oakhill School’s Kids’ Lit Quiz team attended the event’s National Finals at Roedean School in Johannesburg on Saturday, 23 February. The dynamic team of Mia Guccio, Victoria Still, Jemima Wilcox-Jones and Liam Nelson came second (by only one point) to St John’s, putting Knysna on the map as a literary force to be reckoned with! The Kids’ Lit Quiz is an international competition that was developed by New Zealander, Wayne Mills, who reads all current children’s books and creates the quiz himself. Wayne is a wealth of knowledge, and teachers and parents scribble down notes of recommended books as he exclaims, ’Another one to read before Easter!’ Wayne travels around the world, quizzing school children and spreading excitement and the love of literature everywhere he goes.
