The Cape Argus High Schools Quiz, sponsored by Food Lover’s Market in association with IIE’s Varsity College, will officially begin today, when 79 teams from 36 schools go against each other.
The annual quiz, now in its 11th year, encourages high school learners to test their knowledge of the news and current affairs that can be found within the pages of the Cape Argus.
This year’s round robin venues have been centralised to six schools, where three of four groups will be going up against one another at each venue. With only two round robin stages taking place in this year’s quiz, pupils will have to bring their A-game to get into the knockout stages.
Learners will be quizzed on two weeks’ worth of stories in the newspapers. The first round robin material will be from the Cape Argus newspapers published between April 8 to 18.
