The Knowledge Bowl, this event has been known for its insanely challenging and unforgiving questions, this is where the school’s geniuses come to battle it all out against themselves, and where all the normal people just don’t have a clue.
The elimination rounds have concluded with three teams out of the original 8 making it through to the next stage, These elimination rounds consisted of 30 minutes of competitiveness, tense moments and decisive and quick discussions in-between the competing groups. The teams had to answer questions prepared for the competition by Vice Captains Sami Bulushi and Marwan Ruqaishi, and as you can conclude from this , the questions asked were…. unusual.
The teams which made it to the semi-finals were Dolphin team 1, Dolphin team 2 and Hawk team 2. These teams then competed against each other to determine the final victor and the runner-up positions. Dolphin team 2 were named as the victors while Dolphin team 1 came in as a close second and the Hawk team ironically had the fewest correct answers.
The final Knowledge Bowl event took place in front of secondary and primary students in the Auditorium, the winners of the knowledge bowl went head to head with a previously organised team of teachers. the Dolphin team, however, was obviously not enjoying the best of days as the score was, by far, not in their favor. The participants were then given their awards and well deserved medals for contributing to the event and achieving great results.
This event has been excellently organised by Vice Captains Ali Al-Zaabi, Noor al Khonji, Safia al Mawali, Eithaar al Barwani and Shireen al Busaidi in collaboration with our very enthusiastic supervisor, Mr. Ali Qubtan. Of course none of the Vice Captains had any idea what they were doing at first but it all worked out for the best.
