A close call at Bridgend Rotary Club’s junior quiz

By Contributed Item in Local People

The Rotary Club of Bridgend held its annual junior quiz at Tondu Primary School on May 17.

It was an exciting and close run event with pupils, parents, staff and Rotarians supporting the evening.

Seven local primary schools, Brackla, Litchard, Maes-yr-Haul, Pencoed, Tondu, Trelales and Tremains entered the competition and four pupils from each school answered a variety of questions from a range of categories.

The pupils demonstrated their wide range of knowledge to the delight of the packed audience who were all there to support their teams.

Pupils from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 represented their schools and answered four questions each. Scores were very close throughout the evening but on the final analysis, the winners were declared to be Litchard Primary School.

The winning team included Jacob Best representing year-3, Anwen Thompson representing year-4, Evan Richards representing year-5 and Thomas Lewis representing year-6.

All participants were congratulated by the president of the Rotary Club of Bridgend, Dr Bob Broughton, who presented the winner’s cup and certificates and vouchers to each member of the winning team.

The Rotary Club of Bridgend would like to thank Tondu Primary School and headteacher, Mrs Pilcher, for hosting the event.

Thanks also go to all of those people who attended and encouraged the competitors and made it an exciting evening.
