Westholme students compete in Schools Challenge General Knowledge Quiz

On Wednesday 27 November, Hasna Ghafoor, Stephanie Hannah, Kathryn Jaitly and Katie Buckley represented Westholme in the Schools Challenge General Knowledge Quiz.

This is similar to University Challenge and the girls faced some really difficult questions. They did brilliantly in the first round, beating the A team from Austin Friars School in Carlisle.

In the second round, they came up against Lancaster Grammar A team who are the reigning national champions. Lancaster Grammar started very strongly, but Westholme valiantly fought back. Unfortunately, Lancaster’s experience of being brilliantly quick on the buzzer led to the defeat of our team.

We would like to thank all four girls for participating and look forward to further practice and a rematch next year!
