Euroquiz – By Sam and Freya P5/6

On the 20th of March was the Euroquiz and Gullane competed. Us, Christian and Jude were the competitors for the team.  We all had to do lots and lots of practising at school and home.

We went to Preston Lodge High school for the East Lothian Heat. The quizmaster was Mrs Tremmel, our headteacher. The other schools were Dunbar, Loretto, Pinkie, Musselburgh, Saltoun, Macmerry, Prestonpans and Gullane. The 1st round was geography. The 2nd round was language. The 3rd round was basically politics. After the 3rd round there was a break and we got sweets. We were tied with Loretto at that point! The 4th round was general knowledge. After the 4th round we were  ahead of Loretto by one point but we had to go into a final with them .By the 5th round only the top 2 teams remained, us and Loretto!!!! We drew the 5th round. Then we drew the tiebreaker. It was super tense. Then it went to sudden death. Then Loretto got an answer wrong so we won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  That means we get to go to the Scottish Parliament’s Debating Chamber for the final.

We went to the Scottish Parliament to go to the Euroquiz final.  There were three rounds, Geography, Language and understanding europe.  It was a lot of fun and some of the questions were quite hard. We came 3rd out of the 31 schools (470 overall) who made it to the final we got bronze medals and pencil cases and we also got our goody bag.  🙂  🙂  🙂  🙂

The winners were St  Mary Duntocher and Strathblane were 2nd.

We enjoyed taking part and the main things we enjoyed were being away from school for something different and coming 3rd.

 

 

 

 

 

Rainbow Bake Sale

Thanks to all the parents, staff and children who supported our Bake Sale in aid of the Intensive Care Unit and High Dependency Unit in the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh.

The House Captains and some of the Pupil Council did a FANTASTIC job organising and running this and some of them braved the cold to sell cakes outside at the entrance to the school.

We will let you know what it raised in due course.

Each class has selected a few children to take part in the Assembly. Thanks to all the parents who helped them to prepare their Scots poem etc. It is a shame that we could not select everyone to take part!
