A P7 team represented Meiklemill School at the Ellon heat of the inter-schools Rotary Quiz back in March.

The team won with a great score (112 out of 120) against nine other teams and they went forward to represent Ellon at the district hear in May.

They competed against many teams from across the North-East in Dyce and narrowly missed out on a placing.

Dave Cowe of Ellon Rotary visited the school to present the team with the engraved Rotary Quiz shield which will now be on display in the school for the next year.

Team members were also presented with souvenir trophies and Mr Cowe congratulated them on their great performance.

Ellon Rotary members counted up the winners of the previous shield and announced that Meiklemill had its name on the shield the most times.
