STUDENTS from Meadowgate School in Wisbech proved they were up on their rights stuff by coming top in the Consumer Challenge Quiz for 2009.
Youngsters from six special schools from Cambridgeshire battled it out in the quiz which was run by Cambridgeshire County Council. Special guest at the event was Dame Norma Major.
The winning team from Meadowgate was Tori Sykes, William Townrow, Guy Jolly and Charlotte Munday. All the teams were cheered on by fellow pupils, teachers and helpers.
The quiz aims to teach the youngsters about a wide range of issues including shopping rights, product safety, and food labelling. Officers visited the schools to give them an insight into the areas of work covered by Trading Standards.
