Nerds’ night out
A bookish mastermind quiz will take place this Friday, July 5, after the original date was postponed due to the recent storm. Mana MP Kris Faafoi will act as quizmaster to 17 teams made up of year 7 and 8 pupils from around Porirua. The children will be quizzed on 14 books which made the shortlist for last week’s New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards. The quiz is free and will take place at Plimmerton School from 10am until 2.30pm. For more information ring Michelle Shannon-Smith at Windley School, 237 7095.
