This year's Otago Daily Times EXTRA Current Events Quiz once again saw eight South teams battling it out with 64 other Year 7 and 8 teams from around Canterbury to be this year's champions.  Each team's knowledge of national and international events, geography, national flags, famous faces, and their ability to locate information within the Otago Daily Times were all put to the test in order to find the the most successful team from Canterbury for 2016. 

Each year this competition gets tougher and, as always the competition was fierce. With South's impressive record at this event, it was no secret that we were once again determined to do our very best. With the top teams running neck and neck throughout the evening, the South 4 team of Sophie, Julius, and Amelia scored an impressive 97 points out of 100, earning them a very creditable 2nd equal, only 1 point behind the eventual winners.
