This Saturday, Nations played host to the International History Bee and Bowl competition, a buzzer-based quiz based off American-style bees and University Challenge-style college bowls. The competition is open to Secondary and DP students. This has been our third year hosting this prestigious competition, and we have been taking part in these competitions since 2014.
This year, Nations brought a whopping 16 contestants, more than ever before. While we mostly focused on the older age categories, we were able to bring year 7s, 9s and 11s as well. In most of the competitions we were involved in, we wiped the floor with the competition, and still did very well in those we did not win.
The Nations winners are listed here:
Varsity Bowl (group competition):
First place: Nations B
Second place: Nations A
Peter de Salis

The International History Bee and Bowl is a great opportunity for students to show their knowledge, learn, and cooperate in their teams, skills which can come very useful in life and post high school studies. An opportunity that young passionate historians can’t miss!
