Retiring Otago Daily Times Extra! editor Ivan Behrnes urged pupils to nurture their interest in current events as he signed off from the role.
Mr Behrnes and his wife Ann presided over their last current events quiz, for years 9 and 10, at Kaikorai Valley College yesterday.
Mr Behrnes founded the educational magazine in Timaru three decades ago, bringing it to the Otago Daily Times in 2003.
Mr Behrnes said parents and grandparents had gained much enjoyment over the years reading children’s work published in the supplement.
Mr Behrnes told the secondary school pupils it was "critical" for them to retain a strong interest in current events.
Otago Boys’ High School (team 2) won the quiz, scoring 97 out of 100 points. In second place was Bayfield High School (team 7) with 96 points, ahead of Taieri College (team 4) on 95 points. The ODT plans to continue to publish the Extra! magazine for primary, intermediate and secondary school pupils.
