General Info

We will look forward to you attending the 2nd VIQC Regional in the North East. We hope to make this bigger and better than previous ones, open to all Elementery (Primary years 4-6), you will need to check birthday rules too for age limits.

We have decided to run this on a Saturday due to positive comments from team mentors last year and the increased issues of teachers being allowed out of school. Thank you to Woodlea Primary School for providing the venue for free and hosting again.

As it's a Saturday, there are plenty of car parking spaces. Should any teams want to bring their kit the night before, this can be arranged.

Please bring refreshments and packed lunch for the day. I will ensure we have a kettle and ample supply of tea and coffee for adults.

If you have any questions, please contact me directly.

I'm looking forward to this years Challenge :)
