POPULAR QUIZ ENGAGES LEARNERS
The Schools Quiz, an annual event for high school pupils, is sponsored by Varsity College and hosted by its eight campuses nationwide. The Port Elizabeth campus will be hosting its Quiz at the Victoria Park High School on 21 August at 18h30.
This year will be the fourth year with the collaboration between Varsity College and Algoa FM. Part of this collaboration included a lead up to the quiz where 5 schools were selected to go up against the Daron Mann Breakfast Show (DMB) live on air in studio. This year Victoria Park High School, Collegiate Girls High School, St Dominics Priory, Grey High School and Westering High School all got the opportunity to compete against Charlton from the DMB show and to meet the quiz master both on air and for the actual event - Daron Mann.
The Quiz involves three rounds, each consisting of seven categories including current affairs, sport, entertainment, history, geography and the environment, arts and literature and general knowledge. The objective of the Schools Quiz is to engage learners in a different way on becoming more aware of what is happening in the world around them and to see the impact this can have on their lives.
Danielle Campbell, Vice Principal of Marketing says: “Each member in the winning team will be walking away with a R1000.00 cash prize and a bursary from Varsity College. One grade 12 learner at the discretion of the winning school will also receive a full three year tuition bursary fund”.
