Wildlife Junior School Quiz 2016

Mashonaland School Wins National Quiz Finals!

On Saturday the 29th of October 2016, a remarkable change was recorded in the history of the National Finals of Wildlife and Environment Quiz competition as it was hosted at Hellenic Primary School in Harare. The National quiz was shifted from the traditionally known Midlands venue to Harare following previous recommendations to rotate the finals.

The major and remarkable development from this year’s National Quiz was the presence of Zimbabwe Broadcasting Co-operation ZBC who captured every moment and the video of the quiz was screened on the National Television.

The Mashonaland region was successful this year as Hellenic School won first place and Springvale House came in the second position. Midlands school, Gold ridge Primary School came in third position. The winners were awarded with great prizes that included: Cadac camping chairs, umbrellas, solar lanterns, mammal reference books, consol juice bottles, travel mugs, pico light, solar economy lantern, mathematics and English text books.

WEZ Chairman, Isaiah Nyakusendwa, stated “I am glad the quiz for 2016 was successful, however, we would like to reach more schools in 2017 Wildlife Junior School quiz. We hope that with funding we will be able to reach our target of increasing the number of participating schools .”

A special thanks goes to all the sponsors and donors who contributed in the 2016 quiz, Save African Rhino Foundation, Zimbabwe Hunters Association, Zambezi Society, Birdlife Zimbabwe, COSMO, Zimbabwe Farmers Union, Environmental Management Agency, Big Sky, Belvedere Technical Teachers College and David Pocock.
