Congratulations to our Quiz club Beehive team who today took part in their first every ‘General Knowledge Inter Schools Championships’. Being the first time, there were some nervous faces from the chuldren, especially when they realised that some of the other schools who were taking part were entering two teams.
Mrs Walker, who has worked hard with the after schools quiz club which has only been running since September, and Mr Whipps, along with some Beehive Parents were there to cheer the team on. Mrs Walker gave the team a last minute prep talk before the lights went down and out host took to the stage.
12 teams were entered, 1 team had to pull out and competition was fierce among the remaining 11 teams. Question after question was called out, the teams had to work together, working out strategies, keeping track of the leaders, but most importantly accessing the knowledge they had acquired.
All through the competition they made steady progress and finished after a grueling 1 hour and 30 minutes in 7th out of 12th place. An incredible achievement!
An amazing ending to our first competition entry.
Well Done Team Beehive we are all so very proud of you.
