These events bring together individuals with a passion for learning, quick thinking, and the desire to test their wits against challenging questions. These events promote critical thinking, enhance general knowledge, and foster teamwork.
The atmosphere was charged with anticipation and excitement as students of the Upper Primary segment delved into the thrilling world of quiz competitions as part of the CCA 8 event, QuestFest.
Students from Grade 3 tackled questions on the ‘Solar System’. Grade 4 students tested their knowledge about ‘Mountains and Rivers', and Grade 5 students were challenged on their knowledge of ‘National and International Leaders’.
