Year 8 Geography Trivia Quiz 2016 was held at St Marys Memorial Hall on Thursday 27th October . It was a packed house. Many schools travelled a great distance to attend. All students were on task, excited and represented their schools with distinction. Congratulations to Oxley College who took out their second title in a row. They won by the narrowest margin. Second place went to Baulkham Hills High with Cherrybrook Tech High third. Only four points separated the top eight teams. Thanks must go to all the helpers who make it an enjoyable, educational and fun experience for students.
