A TEAM of four pupils from Sandwick Primary School took part in this year’s national Euroquiz final.
The school was one of 31 from across Scotland to feature in the event, which was held on Tuesday at Edinburgh’s Heriot-Watt University.
The team of Ruby Adamson, Willum Tulloch, Sophie Tait and Jake Cormack beat Sound Primary School in the Shetland regional heat in February by just two points to earn their place in the final.
The Scottish European Educational Trust quiz aims to help primary six pupils learn about Europe and the European Union.
The Sandwick team finished a respectable 19th on the day, with teacher Clare Coghill – who travelled with the kids – praising her pupils’ enthusiasm for learning.
“It’s been a fantastic experience for the four pupils and myself,” she said.
“They have worked really hard to prepare for the competition and learned a huge amount about Europe. It’s been great to share the experience with pupils and teachers from across Scotland.”
