Fifteen teams from nine Alford Academy feeder primaries met at the new Alford Community Campus for the local heat of the Rotary District Primary Schools Quiz.

There were two teams from Alford, Craigievar, Keig, Midmar, Tough and Towie, and one each from Lumsden, Monymusk and Tullynessle.

The competition took the form of ten rounds of six questions, with subjects varying from ‘Doric words,’ to identifying different creatures from pictures of their tails.

Scoring was once again high with the first three teams getting more than 75% correct answers.

Alford A, pictured, were the winners, with Midmar second and Alford B third. Alford A go through to the zone final in Ellon in May.
