Wishaw school takes top spot in Euroquiz heats

3:13pm - 22 May 2024

Congratulations to St Thomas’ PS pupils on winning this year’s North Lanarkshire Euroquiz heats.

The team of four will now represent the area at the finals in June, where they will compete against schools from all over Scotland.

The annual competition, which is run in partnership with The Scottish European Educational Trust, is open to all Primary 6 pupils across Scotland, challenging teams to broaden their knowledge of Europe and the wider world.

The quiz covers a range of subjects including languages, history, geography, culture, and European affairs.

Local heats run from February to April, with winning teams moving on to the National Euroquiz Final in June.

The competition was fierce, but one team emerged victorious: St Thomas’ Primary School.

The joint runners-up were the teams from St Brendan’s Primary School and Netherton Primary School, who impressed with their performances.

Councillor Michael McBride, Convener of Education, Children and Families, said: “This year, more than 22 schools from across the authority participated, with pupils working incredibly hard to prepare for questions related to languages and Europe.

“Congratulations to all those who took part for their hard work and dedication, and best of luck to St Thomas’ Primary School in the National Euroquiz Final!”

The St Thomas’ PS team received prizes and certificates from Lorraine McBride, Education and Families Manager from North Lanarkshire Council.

St Brendan’s Primary School was awarded their prizes and certificates by their class teacher, Mrs. Smedley, alongside Catriona Henderson, Education Support Officer from North Lanarkshire Council.

Netherton Primary School’s team received certificates and prizes from class teacher, Mrs. McGuire.

The heats took place on Tuesday, March 26, 2024.
