The annual SAIIA/Caltex Interschool’s Quiz took place at Bishops on the 15th of May. Gabi Jacobs, Lauren Gildenhuys, Nicole Wentzel and Tamar Kendon were elected to represent Wynberg this year.

The Quiz, which started at 18:30, has been running since 1992 and this year 50 schools participated. In preparation for the Quiz, team members were supplied with the Cape Times for two weeks, and also recieved two copies of the Mail & Guardian. The Quiz was set from the content of these newspapers. The questions, dealing with current affairs, were interesting and varied – from those of the sporting kind to those dealing with finances and politics.

Africa Molane was an excellent host and Tim Murithi a slick quiz master. The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Congratulations To the winning school, Chesterhouse, and to our very own team, who placed 17th out of the 50 schools!
