CW Prescod Primary cops KCCU Quiz

The CW Prescod Primary is the new champion of the annual Kingstown Co-operative Credit Union (KCCU) Schools’ Quiz Competition.

With representation from Zachary Harry and Darryl King, CW Prescod outpointed the five other finalists last Saturday at the Reuben John Development Centre, located in the KCCU administrative building. Harry and King had to repel a strong challenge from the Biabou Methodist pair of Angelique {{more}}Nichols and Dennis Toussaint Jr.

Both schools were perfect in the first multiple choice round, as they were level on 10 points, and after the second round of close ended items, the two institutions were again tied up on 19 points apiece.

But the CW Prescod’s duo made good of the buzzer round, to finish on 23 points and a lien on the competition.

For taking the title, the CW Prescod Primary will receive $2,000 from the KCCU, as well as a year’s keep of the Thomas Saunders Challenge Trophy.

This is in addition to a cash award of $300 each to Harry and King, along with individual trophies, gifts and start-up accounts valued at $25 each, compliments the KCCU.

The representatives of second placed Biabou Methodist got trophies, gifts, $250 each and start-up accounts.

Docking in third was the Calliaqua Anglican School, represented by Joshua Wills and Nequest John. They received trophies, gifts and $200 each.

The other schools in the finals were fourth placed and 2015 winners, the Kingstown Government School, represented by Ronicia Duncan and Fennique Pitt, with the Pamelus Burke Government and the Fitz-Hughes Government, both occupying the fifth spot.

The Pamelus Burke representatives were Reynolly Hillocks and Breann Bacchus, while Fitz- Hughes had a lone representative in A’ Jay Adams as his teammate Cody Bartley was able to attend because of illness.

They were each presented with $150 and like the others, start-up accounts of $25 with KCCU.

The six finalists had emerged from the preliminary round of competition which took place at the St Vincent Grammar School on November 19.

The schools were quizzed in the areas of General Knowledge, Current Affairs, Sports, Credit Union Affairs and Local History.(RT)
