Chisholm would like to congratulate our Year 7 and 8 Kids Lit Quiz Teams on their outstanding results. The Kids Lit Quiz is an international competition held in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Indonesia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, and the USA. The winning team from each heat competes in a National Final. National champions compete in the World Final.


On Friday 24th July, Chisholm’s Year 7 and 8 teams took on 11 other schools across Brisbane and the Gold Coast to answer a range of literature question across eight categories. Our Year 7 team of Rohan Barraclough, Isabella Harland-Smith, Yasmine Nijjar and Noah Tenuis WON the competition and will be competing for the National Title in early Term 4. Our Year 8 team of Ella Marshall, Olivia Fitzgerald, Jake, and Alice clawed their way from 7th place in one instance to finish 3rd overall (only 2 points from taking 2nd place). It is wonderful to see our students engaged with literature and reading widely.
