Kahoot Tournament

Greetings Vikings! Do you want to test your skills in a qualifier style at a Kahoot tournament ? We’ll be having a Kahoot Tournament taking place every Friday during lunch over the next three weeks at the LRC. This kahoot tournament will be limited to 30 participants and it's a first come first serve basis. Participants will be given a treat for joining in. The top three to five winners of each week will return for a third week to find out who the top winner is and will be receiving the grand treat. Each week will have three topics to research, shown at the start of the week. So join us at the LRC to test your knowledge and let's have fun!


ACT Testing
