Peters, Edwards win 2005 KCCU Quiz

The Brighton Methodist School duo of Zenika Peters and Kayral Edwards won the Kingstown Cooperative Credit Union School Quiz competition last Saturday. They proved too dazzling for their counterparts and came out with the Thomas Saunders trophy.

That is the symbol of Primary School Quiz supremacy. But that wasn’t their only reward. All the participants received trophies and Certificates, and cash prizes.{{more}}

Peters and Edwards formed an unbeatable combination, and pit their skills, knowledge and wits to take the top prize.

The contest came off at the Kingstown Methodist Church Hall.

Zenika, an 11-year-old Grade Six student from Prospect in East St. George, is the daughter of Sharmaine Peters and Louis Jones. She commended the KCCU for staging the Quiz.

Edwards is from the South Windward district of Calder and was recently admitted to the Brighton Primary School. She is the daughter of Kaleen and Elmore Edwards.

She thinks that the Quiz was “good” and admitted: “I learnt some new things.”

Edwards, a ten-year old Grade six student praised the KCCU for their foresight.

“They spent a lot of time organising this competition for our benefit,” Edwards pointed out.

She wants to be an engineer or a doctor. She is encouraging youngsters to join the Cooperative movement.

Park Hill Government School represented by Akeeda Springer and Jefrial Hazel copped the second position, ahead of the Kingstown Government School pair of Jerome Christopher and Natisha Pitt who placed third. The fourth pair of finalists was from the Georgetown Government School by Britnay Drayton and Laran Billy.

The KCCU marks its 48th anniversary next April 12. It has gone through several phases including liquidation in 1984. Thereafter, a revival has seen fortunes improve, and KCCU has established itself as one of the leading Credit Unions in the State.

There are over 11,000 members and assets worth $31.8 million.
