St Andrew’s Primary pupils triumph at Rotary Quiz


St Andrews Primary School was the winning team at Fraserburgh Rotary Club’s Primary School Quiz on Wednesday February 22.

Eight teams of local Primary 7 pupils took part in the school quiz at Fraserburgh Academy.

The quiz consisted of 10 rounds of questions covering everything from geography to music to logos to spelling.

The teams were commendably neck and neck for much of the evening and the knowledge displayed was impressive.

The team from St Andrews Primary School triumphed in the end. They will now go on to the Area final and, if successful, could carry Fraserburgh’s hopes to the District final in early June.

Rotary’s District 1010, which covers clubs from Fife to the Highlands, has for a number of years run a quiz for P7 pupils, which starts with local heats, goes on to an Area final and culminates in a District final.

The competition aims to offer senior primary pupils an experience of competing as part of a team as well as the opportunity to meet pupils from other schools.

Rotary President, Gill Lamont said:

“It was a really enjoyable evening and the effort and commitment that all the teams showed was fantastic. All of the supporters seemed to have a great evening too.

“I would also like to thank Rotarian Pauline Clarke who had organised and compered such a well run competition.”
