During November 2 teams of HHS students in years 7 & 8 represented our school at the regional heat of this prestigious international competition!
This competition has been going for 25 years, in 11 countries! In our heat, students competed with those from the following schools: QE Boys; City of London; Arnold House; Wetherby; Lyndhurst; University College School; Orley Farm; Queenswood and attempted to correctly answer 100 questions – 10 per themed round – we can’t mention all the rounds in case this affects heats elsewhere in the world! But our boys’ team were top scorers for ‘Realms’.
Technically the visiting authors team won, but the prize was given to Queen Elizabeth’s School with 86/100 who go to the UK final in December. Hopefully they can win and go through to the world final in Canada! Sadly our students didn’t quite make it to the national final, but a good day was had by all.
The secret to future success? Keep reading!
