Fantastic results again this year from our budding sociologists.
Our winning “EXTRA” current events quiz
team of 2013 in Year 9 returned in 2014 to defend their title against sixty
five other school teams in late September in the Kaikorai College hall. The
team of Ben Clayton, Cameron Bayne and Max Riddle scored ninety six points out
of a hundred to win by five marks. This was a magnificent result due mainly to
many hours of study and preparation throughout the year. The boys were anxious
about defending their title and said it was much harder this year to hold on to
the number one position than to win it for the first time.
In the Year 11 History quiz held at Balmacewan Golf Club in late September Logan Park also reigned supreme. First, second and Third place all went to Logan Park teams ahead of sixteen other competing teams. The winning team was made up of Ruari Griffin, Oscar LaDell, Grant McNaughton and Jonty Horwell,
In the senior history quiz the competition was fierce between twenty teams with Logan Park coming a close second behind Kings. So we came very close to winning all three quizzes in 2014.
