Inverness school makes it to Euroquiz final in Scottish Parliament

Euroquiz is a competition for Primary 6 pupils which helps them develop their knowledge of Europe and the European Union, as well as core skills such as communication and teamwork.  Over 1500 pupils competed in the heats across Scottish local authorities.  

To secure their place in the final, the Crown Primary team of Finlay Stokes (Captain), Kenneth Fraser, Jemima Gray and Megan Henderson fought off competition from 18 other primary schools in the Highland Council heat.

The 18 schools competing were: Ardersier, Auldearn, Balloch, Cradlehall (who were the overall winners of the Scottish title in 2013 and runners-up in the Highland heat this year), Dornoch, Drakies, Duncan Forbes, Farr, Grantown, Hill of Fearn, Inshes, Inver, Kinmylies, Knockbreck (Tain), Lochardil, Rosebank, South Lodge and Wick South Primaries.

The Scottish European Educational Trust (SEET) is a registered charity established in 1993 which aims to promote and encourage education about Europe to students at schools, colleges and universities throughout Scotland.

Euroquiz is the brain child of The Scottish European Educational Trust (SEET).  It is SEET’s belief that teaching Scotland’s children about Europe will promote a better understanding of how countries within Europe work together, seeing it as a sound investment for Scotland’s future.
