A few weeks ago we reported that 8RDC won the Lower School Literary Quiz and were awarded the prestigious Neale Shield after a closely fought battle against 8LVD, who finished second.

Our quiz competitions are focused on the Lower School, but one of our former top players, Atitiya (9NS), requested a challenge match of her Year 9 classmates against the best of Year 8. Atitiya chose both Year 9 teams and they took it deadly seriously, even requesting a practice!

However, it was to no avail and 8RDC were champions once again. The scores were as follows:

  • 1st place: 8RDC, 33
  • 2nd: Atitiya ‘A’ Select, 30
  • 2nd: Atitiya ‘B’ Select, 30
  • 3rd: 8LVD, 15

This was a really brilliant event, with many spectators, and was mainly organised by Atitiya and other pupils. They were incredibly self-motivated and there were some wonderful quiz players in the teams which took part. Well done to everybody who took part and for Atitiya for rallying her Year 9 contemporaries to compete.
