Parktown Girls High School participate in Newspaper Quiz
Parktown Girls’ High School learners took part on 7 August in the Star Newspaper Quiz. The team took part in the annual Star High School Quiz challenge. The team consisted of four grade 11 learners: Joanna Ciolkosz, Ammaarah Badsha, Madiha Acoob and Sonia Maharaj. Eighteen teams from different schools in the district took part.
The participants had to study news in five categories for ten days. Anything from any of the newspapers could be asked which, therefore, meant that the team needed to read all the articles found within the newspapers. This took loads of time and effort.
Unfortunately, they did not qualify for the next round but the school was very proud of their achievement. Undertaking a time consuming challenge like this in the midst of all the other extra murals they are involved in, just proves again that the learners are all-rounders; a trait that is typical Parktown and something that will stand them in good stead in years to come. All in all, this was a fun experience and they were able to learn a lot from it.
