International History Bee and Bowl Competition – European Division

An historical event took place on Saturday, 18th March at The Senior School, Cyprus as the first ever International History Bee & Bowl tournament took place. Whilst thunderstorms took place outside, inside primary and secondary students pitted their knowledge on History against each other from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Senior School had 5 teams taking part, The Junior School 1 team and Pascal, Lemesos 1 team. David and Nolwenn Madden flew in from the USA to host the competition at The Senior School.

Many rounds took place and the students had to be very quick on the buzzer; there was palpable excitement in the air, especially for the tightly fought final rounds. ‘Bee’ competitions also took place for Geography and Science. All Junior & Senior School teams qualified to take part in the European Championships in Barcelona in June! Well done to the History department at Senior School and for all who took part; it was truly a great experience.
