On Thursday night, OBHS senior History students won the annual Otago History Teachers’ Association Senior History Quiz held at Otago Golf Club.
The victorious team comprised of Year 12 students Colby Allen, Samuel Hewson, Kevin Clancy and Kelvin Weston. After the final round, they were a narrow five points ahead of their nearest rivals. Upon inspection of the trophy, it was discovered this was the first success for OBHS in the senior quiz for at least a decade. Hopefully, the same senior team will return to defend the trophy next year.
Our other senior team of Year 13 students placed a credible fourth. In the Year 11 section OBHS’ teams were third equal with a tie break needed to split them.
A big thank you to the boys for participating and OHTA for organising.
