    Students Win Rotary General Knowledge Quiz

    Students have all the answers in St Ives Rotary Club's Sixth Form General Knowledge competition.

    Victorious Kimbolton School Sixth Form Rotary Quiz TeamA team of Kimbolton School students has claimed victory in the Rotary Club of St Ives' inter-schools Sixth Form general knowledge competition.

    Captain Matthew Smith, along with Patrick Choy Winters, Charlie Evans, Ben Hallam, Ciane Hilborn, Joe and Benny Moerman, Laurence Turvey and Charlotte Wright, held their nerve in a nail-biting finish - narrowly beating Hinchingbrooke School and Longsands Academy to reclaim the ‘Top of the Form’ cup which Kimbolton previously held in 2016 and 2017. The students correctly answered 181 out of a total of 195 questions, securing victory by 6 points.

    Each team was quizzed by a Rotarian in their own school, simultaneously, with round-by-round scores rung into a central scorer.

    President of St Ives Rotary Club, Mr Iain Martin, along with quiz master Mr Alan Ward, visited Kimbolton last week to present the winning team with their cup and a commemorative certificate.

    Mr Martin said: “This year was a tough challenge with a broad range of questions on everything from Catherine The Great to Swedish environmentalists via American baseball. Well done to everyone who took part, what a great display of general knowledge! We look forward to challenging all our schools again next year.”
