St Mary Redcliffe team take Bristol title in WorldWise Quiz

Our thanks to Phil Amor and his team at QEH School for hosting the 2019 Bristol WWQ for Yr10-11s. Also, many thanks for logistical support from the GA committee (past and present): Michelle Graffagnino (UWE), Simon Killen (SMRT) and Chloe deKlein (BBA), David Richards (UoB), Garry Atterton and Fiona Hallworth.

Ten teams from five local schools – Brunel Bristol Academy, St Mary Redcliffe and Temple (SMRT), Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH), Bristol Grammer and Backwell Schools – engaged in intense geographical activity, fielding questions on a wide range of material. Garry Atterton put them through their paces as quizmaster.
