School quiz team in world­wide chal­lenge

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

KNOWL­EDGABLE pupils came close to tak­ing home a pres­ti­gious quiz prize. Oun­dle School young­sters com­peted in the an­nual Geo­graph­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion’s World­wise Quiz in Cam­bridge. Izzie Fair­lie (14), Richard Tay­lor (15) and Leo Bur­rough (14) en­dured six tough rounds of ques­tions as a team, com­ing in the top three to put them through to the play-off rounds. They then went head-to-head and were only a cou­ple of points off the lead­ers be­fore fi­nally com­ing sec­ond. Izzie said: “The at­mos­phere at the quiz was tense and com­pet­i­tive, but ev­ery­one was there to en­joy them­selves in a fun and chal­leng­ing evening.”
