Cape Town - Eight schools from four regions will battle it out for top honours and more than R20 000 in prizes in the inaugural National High School Quiz with IIE Varsity College in September.
Borne from the Cape Argus High School Quiz, which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary, the National High School Quiz has had its beginnings in four regional quiz events held in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and KwaZulu-Natal.
Schools entered local quiz events with teams consisting of four learners together with an educator or coach. Winners of the local high school quiz events progressed to the Regional Quiz Finals, with the top two teams from each region then qualifying for the Inaugural National High School Quiz with IIE Varsity College.
The schools making it through to the finals are:
- Cape Argus quiz winners South Peninsula High and runners-up Steenberg High
- Daily News quiz winners Eden College and runners-up Seatides Combined School
- Pretoria News quiz winners Pretoria High School for Boys and the runners-up Pretoria Chinese School
- The Star quiz winners Veritas College and runners-up Midlands Primary and High School
