Rounds included: Geographical A to Z, 2016 Olympics, Google Earth, OS Maps, Rivers, Field Studies.
Our seasoned quizmaster, Dr. Tony Hoare, posed the questions to teams from Bristol Grammar, Backwell, St Mary Redcliiffe and Temple, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Redland High. Eventual winners were Bristol Grammar School(2), with QEH(2) taking second place. Third place went to Backwell School, after recount (sorry, SMRT).
Big thanks to
1. the GA committee members who were in attendance to host, organise, offer refreshments, score (Janet Neil, Simon Killen, Chloe Gibson, Michelle Graffagnino, Garry Atterton), especially Rosemary and Kit Routledge for compiling the quiz (and spotting the ‘deliberate’ errors in the material provided by national GA!).
2. the teachers and parents for encouraging participation and providing transport and moral support
3. the valiant competitors who pitted their wits against each other in what was a geographical workout.
