SEVEN primary schools took part in the annual Dawlish Water Rotary Quiz Challenge.

Youngsters tackled three rounds of 50 questions posed by Rotary quizmasters with each round lasting no more than 15 minutes.

Rounds covered topics: what we learn at school, things we learn outside school and the world.
