George Street Normal School 1 team was among more than 40 teams from Dunedin and East Otago that tested their general knowledge against fellow years 5 and 6 pupils at Bathgate Park School last night. A team from Maori Hill School finished second and Grants Braes School was third.
Despite being all smiles after taking away the top spot, Isabelle Coe, Will Bryant and Sam Hewson were left ruing the one question they did get wrong.
The win was particularly pleasing for Sam, who was in a team that won second place in the quiz last year.
Will said being able to work well as a team was what got them the victory.
George Street Normal School assistant principal Keith Mulholland said he was "very proud" of the team for being so "self-motivated" in preparing for the quiz.
The quick-fire quiz was split into 10 sections with questions on topics ranging from popular spreads to children's authors.
Sixty-two teams also tested their mettle in the years 7 and 8 grade last night. Taina Te Ngahue, Katie Gotlieb and Ally Mole, from Tahuna Intermediate team 6, took the top spot with 97 out of 100 points.
Tahuna Intermediate team 8 and Columba College team 1 tied for second with 94 out of 100.
