KS3 Welsh Book Quiz competition

The Welsh Book Quiz was held across the Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire Hub for pupils in years 7, 8 and 9 at the end of May. Nine teams from schools across the two counties came to the Griffith Jones Centre to discuss books in teams of four. The judge, Elinor Wyn Reynolds, was delighted by the thorough preparation, the lively and mature discussions, and the obvious pleasure the pupils had from read the challenging novels.

The winning teams were Maes y Gwendraeth (first), Ysgol Y Preseli (second) and Bro Myrddin (third). Book tokens from the Welsh Books Council and ERW prize bags were distributed alongside a special trophy that was presented to the winners.
