It was a clean sweep for Elizabeth College at the 11th De Putron Challenge, an annual quiz for schools across Guernsey and Jersey. The College teams won each category in the Guernsey round which were for Sixth Formers, Year 8 and Year 6 students. They will now go on to compete against the winners of the Jersey round on the 23rd November 2017.
The De Putron Challenge is a fun, friendly and educational quiz, run in a format similar to that of University Challenge. The winning teams receive money for their schools and the quiz master asks the students questions on general knowledge, local history and culture, their chosen specialist subject and many more areas of expertise such as the Olympics, Science, Cultivation and the Channel Islands.
