Primary Schools Quiz Final!


On Tuesday 3rd February, Newquay Tretherras held the final round of its Primary Schools Quiz competition, now in its sixth year.

St Columb Minor, Perranporth, Newquay Junior and Bishops were the four schools competing for the winner’s trophy after qualifying in previous rounds against other primaries.

The teams, made up of pupils from Year 3-6, faced a number of different question rounds including general knowledge, specialist subjects and memory tests.

St Columb Minor’s team, consisting of Will Gapper, Joseph England, Joshua Eyre and Joe Millington, were the winners, coming in just ahead of Perranporth in the final minutes.


Mr Tristan White, Primary Liaison Officer and event organiser said, “The final this year was particularly hard fought, with all the teams scoring highly and the deciding result coming down to the last question.”

He continued, “It was wonderful to see the support the team members gave each other on the individual rounds and the collaboration they showed when working together to answer questions.”
