    Hampshire Literature Quiz 2019
    by Hampshire School Library Service - (SLS HQ) - Tuesday, 2 April 2019, 12:32 PM
     
    The 6th Hampshire School Library Service Literature Quiz Final was won by Thornden School who successfully defended their title. 

    It was a very close affair but Thornden edged away at the end.  Second was Calthorpe Park and 3rd was Oaklands Catholic Secondary.  Many thanks to all the librarians in schools who organised their teams, and to the parents who brought their children to Winchester for the final.  And well done to all the children who represented their schools so well.
