Moir sweeps prizes at International History Bee and Bowl

The International History Bee and Bowl is organised by an American firm that hosts quiz competitions throughout the USA, Europe and Asia. It is run by a 19 day champion on the famous American show Jeopardy who was a contemporary at Princeton of former Moir teacher Rajinda Jayasinghe. It came to Sri Lanka for this first time in February as part of its Asian tour that also included stops inDubai, Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul, Bangkok, Beijing and Shanghai.

Our two teams won the Varsity and Junior Varsity Bowl competitions, respectively, winning all ten of their matches between them. In the solo Bee competition, Amjad Hamza won the Middle School category and Kanishka Jayawickrama was the Varsity Champion. All our students thus qualified for the Asian Championships to be held in Hong Kong later on in the year.
