Pretoria - Crawford College learners participating in the Pretoria News High Schools Quiz Competition say they are ready to show the capital city that they are one of the smartest schools around.
“After last year’s overwhelming experience in the High Schools Quiz Competition, we are aspiring to become this year’s quiz competition champions. We are looking forward to showing other schools that we can win the prize,” said Grade 11 pupil Yasmeen Geldenhuys.
Each school is allowed to enter three teams of four learners plus a reserve for the quiz topics, which include current affairs, politics, business, sport, entertainment and general news.
The learners said they were planning to use the prize money they hope to win towards a charity organisation of their choice.
“If we were to win the prize, we would love to use it on a lot of outreach programmes because our school is privileged hence, giving back to our community would be a wonderful deed,” Jihan Ramphal said.
