On Wednesday 14th November, a team of Year 11 students took part in the regional heat of the Geographical Association World Wise Quiz.  This is an annual event hosted by QUB and open to pupils up to 16 years old.

11 teams from different parts of NI took part on Wednesday. These included BRA, Aquinas, Rainey Endowed, Wallace H.S. and Down High.  The questions were challenging but at the end of four preliminary rounds, Wellington College had made it through to the final – alongside Royal School Armagh and Rathmore Grammar school.

In the final Wellington led from the start, finishing a clear 8 points ahead of Royal Armagh. For the first time ever, Wellington were the winners of this long running quiz!  Many congratulations for an absolutely amazing performance by
