… to the two teams who represented Area 5 at the National Quiz Final held online last week. The teams were from Sir Watkyn Williams Wynn Branch and Gorswen Centre in Anglesey.  There were 23 teams altogether.  The Sir WWW team came 4th and Gorswen were 7th.  What an amazing result and thank you for doing such a good job !  Full results can be seen on the following link –

WWW (left in photo) – Pip Young, Kate Rutherford, Lucy Fox and Scarlett Gilruth.  Three of this team have attended Area 5 online training so perhaps that helped a little.  The Gorswen team (right in photo) was Lauren, Branwen, Niamh and Skye pictured round the table on the night.
