The aim of this challenge was to bring the students together for a quiz competition, which  is a great environmental tool used to help students to maintain interest in the topic of discussion through stimulating questions and  providing a basis for more in-depth investigation of the issues being raised in the competition. It also enables the students to think from different angles or simply ‘think out of the box ‘’about environmental issues. This year’s event was held in room 12 at Business students and Services Center (BSSC) and attracted over 100 students drawn from the four departments of the school. Students who answered the questions correctly were awarded trophies after being vetted by the judges present.
