On 7th Feb 6 pupils, in two teams, represented Mayfield in the 2018 World Wise Local Quiz. It was held at Portsmouth High School, who provided a fantastic buffet tea for everyone. The questions were set by the Geographical Association and pitched for KS4 pupils with questions from the curriculum they have covered but also tested their worldwide knowledge. The pupils faced against stiff competition as the only state school invited and performed very well with some very tricky questions. Some of the questions even made the teachers have to think hard.
All the pupils had a very enjoyable evening, particularly socialising with teams from other schools.
We hope to return next year with new team members as 5 of the 6 participants will have moved on having finished Year 11.
