MASA Annual Student Quiz Night

MASA Annual Student Quiz Night

Whereabouts on your body might you wear an epaulette? Do you know who painted the 1889 self-portrait entitled, Without a Beard?

If you ask any of the 23 Scotch students from Years 8-12 who participated in the annual MASA Quiz Night last Wednesday on 9 August, then they might be able to tell you.

Held at the Australian School of Mathematics and Science at Flinders University, some of Scotch’s best mathematical talent was on display against teams from several schools around the state.

The competition – separated into a Junior division for students in Years 8-10 and a Senior division for those in Years 11-12 – tested the participants’ abilities in mathematics, general knowledge and puzzles; solid teamwork, strategies and time management skills were required to outsmart and outlast rival groups.

Although calculators were allowed, there were no multiple-choice questions on offer, so everyone needed to put their thinking caps on to find the right answers.

With the aid of a generous supply of pizza, chips and soft drinks, one of the Scotch teams was able to experience great success in the overall results; the Year 9 Zachary Horbelt, Thomas Voyvodic, Will Castine-Price and Sam Atherton achieved the highest score in the General Knowledge category out of all the competitors in the Junior division. This outstanding result prolongs the streak of impressive performances that Scotch has delivered at this event in recent years.

That's a wrap on Term 4 and 2019! Enjoy the summer break and have a happy and safe Christmas! https://t.co/CRKA1RkfyE
