So are you smarter than a fifth grader?

That was the question on everyone’s lips as adults pitted their knowledge against Year 5 Catholic school students last month.

As part of Catholic Schools Open Week activities, 1079Life FM ran the radio version of the television quiz.

Listeners were given the chance to test their knowledge against students in their chosen specialist subject. Topics covered were flags, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and A-League soccer.

It was a fun event, with the three students winning convincingly. Those participating were Lachlan (St Joseph’s School, Tranmere), Rose (St Anthony’s, Edwardstown) and Ivan (St Thomas More, Elizabeth Park).
