THE finals of the Billy Nair Circuit Enviro Quiz took place at Glenhaven Secondary on Wednesday, October 17. Verulam Primary, Daylee Independent, and Victoria Primary contested in the final out of nine schools that originally entered. These schools wrote a two-hour test which evaluated their knowledge on the environment and environmental issues. The three schools in the finals produced the highest percentage passed and hence walked the road to the finals. Co-ordinator of the quiz, principal Philip Reddy, said that the objective of the quiz was to rekindle love for the environment in order for life to be sustained. Reddy added that, presently, there are many challenges concerning the environment such as extinction of species, over fishing, pollution, global warming, and shortages of portable water. He hoped that this inaugural quiz will be taken to a higher level next year, but co-ordinated by primary school teachers from the Billy Nair Circuit. Circuit manager Selvan Chetty offered congratulations to the teams in the final and said that although there will be one team who will be declared the winner, in terms of participation, all teams are winners and the environment is richer to have these enviro-buddies. — Supplied.
