Test your general knowledge

2014-06-18 00:00

ARE there any pupils out there who are armchair competitors in The Weakest Link, Who Wants to be a Millionaire and The Chase, who regularly beat the clock and fox their competitors?

If so, it could be time to put your general knowledge skills to the test and pit yourself against the best in town.

The Varsity College School Quiz will be held on August 30 in the Sports Centre at St Charles College, Pietermaritzburg.

The quiz is based on general knowledge questions in various pre-determined categories.

Schools may contact Natasha Enoch or Courtney Thompson at 033 386 2376 on nenoch@varsitycollege.co.za or cthompson@varsitycollege.co.za to enter their team of four before June 20.

Each school can enter up to two teams.

The rules and details for the quiz will be forwarded with some sample questions.

Prizes and bursaries will be up for grabs. The quiz is being organised by Varsity College companies across Pietermaritzburg, Durban, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Pretoria and Port Elizabeth.

Next year, they intend taking the quiz to a national level where winning teams in these six areas will be travelling to a national venue to compete against each other for a National Champion Schools trophy.
