The Hereward Quiz Team has stormed through to the National Semi-Finals of the 'Quiz Club' competition with a comprehensive victory in their heat held in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire. The talented team, consisting of Oscar (Y6), Karis-Joy (Y5), Rhys (Y4) and Rachel (Y3) defeated seven other teams and won by over 300 points. The team kept up the remarkable record of Hereward participation in this event in the past as this was the sixth time in seven years that we have reached the National Semi-FInals of the competition.
Team Captain Oscar said, "It was a great experience for all of us. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and we are looking forward to the semi-finals."
Headteacher Mr Woolard added, "I am very proud of all the children whose wide general knowledge is truly astounding. The fact that they only have thirty seconds to answer each question on such a range of topics makes their achievement even more wonderful."
The team will now go through to the National Semi-Finals which will be held later in the year.
Special mention should also be made to the second Hereward team which finished 3rd in the same heat and narrowly missed out on finishing second. Well done to Alfie (Y6), Alexandra (Y5), Isabel (Y4) and Sophie (Y3) for their brilliant achievement too.
