There was a lot of fun– and quite a bit of head scratching too - when the authors from CWISL (Children’s Writers and Illustrators in South London) came to G&L to run CWIZZ West 2017, the literary quiz for years 6 and 7. Our current Y8s won the previous competition, and we were delighted to host this year’s event in the Bishop Centre where there was much whooping and cheering, as well as some serious reading and thinking going on. Author Mo O’Hara of CWISL was our marvellous master of ceremonies, full of fun and enthusiasm. We all enjoyed the different themed questions, the spot prizes, and were treated to the authors reading their books, when you could have heard a pin drop – an impressive feat with over a 100 adults and students attending. G&L did brilliantly again this year against some very tough opposition, gaining third place (out of 20) with only one and a half points separating our two G&L teams , and only 6 marks between the top 6 places. All of the schools taking part had a wonderful afternoon and here at G&L we’re already looking forward to next year.
