This year, the Pretoria News, in partnership with Varsity College, hosted a High School Quiz. Pretoria High School for Girls entered three teams: Mrs Cÿrus' team, Ms Jelley's team and Mrs Rahman's team. The girls were given a month’s worth of Pretoria News newspapers and the quiz was based on any facts in the newspapers.
After five gruelling categories of questions, PHSG finished the competition holding second, third and fifth places respectively with the top four going through to the Pretoria finals.
We are very grateful to have had the opportunity to compete, especially since the editor of the Pretoria News, Mrs Val Boje, is an Old Girls from our prestigious school.
The girls enjoyed the evening at Maragon Mooikloof and received complimentary participation goody bags and free refreshments. We hope to participate again next year, but for now we wish our two regional teams the best of luck.
