Fingers on buzzers – Perse progress to Schools’ Challenge inter-regionals
The Perse is through to the inter-regional round of Schools’ Challenge (Junior). In an extremely close-fought contest Perse team B defeated Perse team A in the regional final held today. Pupils at the School thoroughly enjoy this quick-fire general knowledge quiz, and under the mentorship of teacher Adrian Roberts have won the regional final of the contest for the last 12 years.
B team, with 730 points were: Juliet Clubb (capt), Barnaby Colvin, Fabian Dodds, Jay Sardesai, Will Sepanski, Peter White
A team, close behind with 700 points were: Jude Burling (capt), Rachel Bentham, Edward Gaskarth, Zach Taylor, Alex Walker, Henry Yates
The two teams will now be combined as The Perse goes forward to represent East Anglia at the inter-regional round at Leicester Grammar School.
Here they are in action, pictured with the question master Roger Osborne, the Schools’ Challenge regional organiser, to whom we offer our thanks for a great contest.
