S1's Junior Quiz

Four sharp young minds travelled through to Edinburgh Academy on Saturday to compete in the 2016 Junior Schools Challenge Quiz.

S1's Petra Mellentin, Shona McCallum, Farwah Rushd and Freddy Russell had to be quick on the buzzers whilst facing tough competition from six other Scottish schools.

The competition is based on University Challenge, and despite this round being for pupils up to the age of thirteen, the questions were no less difficult!

Our team did themselves and Hutchesons' proud, and although they did not make the final, they were runners up in their heat. An entertaining day was certainly had by all.
