Cape Town - GOOD HOPE FM radio listeners got a taste of just how quick and intelligent you need to be when competing in the Cape Argus Food Lover’s Market High Schools Quiz when Rhodes High School Team B took on South Peninsula Team A live on air with Nigel Pierce.

South Peninsula Team A who walked away with the victory, and the team received vouchers from Food Lover’s Market.

Good Hope FM is the radio partner for the 10th birthday edition of the competition, with Pierce being the quiz master for the finals.

There will also be exciting performances that will take place at the Baxter on the day of the semi-finals and finals.

After South Peninsula Team A won, the team of Mugammed Noordien, Lindiwe Traut-Naidoo, Faatimah Schloss and Waseelah Edwards said they were looking forward to the semis and finals.

Faatimah cheekily warned other teams to watch out.

“Good luck to everybody,” Lindiwe added. “We know everyone is going to work as hard as they can.”
