On Wednesday 5 July 2017 the final of The Big Book Quiz 2017 took place at Wigan Youth Zone. After winning the local heat the four year 8 students proudly represented Westleigh, competing against 11 other schools. The competition was very exciting and the results were extremely close.

Our students read a total of 8 books (4 in the heat and 4 for the final) and answered questions on each. The students thoroughly enjoyed the evening with one of them quoted as saying “That’s the best thing I’ve ever done, I loved it.”

The Westleigh Readaholics, was one of 62 teams to take part in the competition and eventually finished a highly respectable fourth, beating schools from Wigan, Bolton, Preston and St Helens.

We are so proud of the student’s commitment and dedication to reading for pleasure and they truly deserve this special mention.

Well done!
