Each year, at the end of Term 2, Baverstock Oaks have two teams represent our school in the Howick and Pakuranga Writers Quiz competition.
Baverstock Oaks organise this event in our school hall. The philosophy behind the New Zealand Writers Quiz is that the children will become familiar with a range of New Zealand authors and their work. The whole contest is treated as an opportunity to turn children on to reading and an opportunity for good readers to explore a range of books they may not have previously read. It is a wonderful way to extend our capable Year 5 and 6 readers.
We won this competition in 2005, our first year the school was open, and again in 2014. In 2015 we had two teams in the competition and by the end of the quiz our two teams and another team from a local school were all equal in points. A play off was held and at the end of this both of our teams were awarded the trophy. We are very proud of the students who have represented our school in these competitions.
