Two teams of boys from Years 6 to 8 joined 28 other teams from 18 South London schools in the fifth annual CWIZZ, held last Friday afternoon at Emanuel School. Organised by children’s authors from CWISL (Children’s Writers and Illustrators South London), this literary quiz is designed to bring together young Londoners in a celebration of books and reading. Between rounds there were chances to win raffle prizes, meet authors, hear “one minute reads” from their books and compete for individual spot prizes.
Not only was the afternoon enormous fun for all the participants, but the Dulwich Prep contingent did extremely well. Our Year 6 (B) team, consisting of James (6L), Louis (6W), Ayan (6D), and Max (6C), were comfortably placed in the Year 6 Challenge, whilst our Year 7&8 (A) team were the Quiz Runners-Up – losing to Emanuel School by just a couple of points! Many congratulations to Jamie (8P), Gregor (8P), Hugo (7C) and Toma (7C).
