A KWAZULU–NATAL high school beat schools from around the country to win the finals of the 2010 National Mondi-Wessa Enviro Quiz held at the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Pietermaritzburg campus on Friday night.

Teams from 12 schools participated in the competition.

Dundee High’s team won, beatingDeutsche Schule Hermannsberg’s second team. Kloof High was placed third, with Hermannsberg’s first team fourth and Maritzburg College fifth.

Dundee High team captain Detlef Bunger said the team had studied hard in both theory and practical subjects and their preparation had paid off. It was his fourth time to take part and the first time the school has won. In addition to a floating trophy, the team won individual book vouchers plus one for their school.

Local environmentalist Dr Jason Londt acted as quizmaster in the 10 rounds of questions about biological and environmental science, which were taken mainly from material prepared by Wessa Share-Net.
