WHAT is a Stradivarius? When was the Russian Revolution? What gas makes Neptune look so blue?
These were some of the brain-teasers posed when the Quiz Club National Inter-School Quiz Championship 2012/2013 came to Dame Bradbury’s School for a local area heat, putting five primary schools through their paces in a tense and exciting general knowledge challenge.
After 40 nerve-wracking questions, Dame Bradbury’s Team 2 came first with 2,250 points, having led almost from the start, but with Felsted’s Team 2 following closely behind throughout.
Felsted 2 came second, with 2,090 points, and Dame Bradbury’s Team 1 was in third place on 2,015 points.
Twelve teams took part, from Dame Bradbury’s, Friends’ School, Felsted Preparatory School, Howe Green House and Cambridge International School.
