Secondary School respectively.

The competition which is in its 5th year running  saw a division of 2
groups, group A & group B squaring it up in numerous rounds of Quiz

After successfully sailing through the first hurdles Lobatse defeated the
ever powerful St Joseph’s College in sudden death questions after both were
tied at 4 points each prompting officials to call a tie breaker in which
the Lobatse Senior Students had to put their technical knowledge of the
stock markets to swink rivals St Joseph’s down.

On the other hand Good-hope Senior proceeded to the semifinals by a stroke
of luck as Lotsane had to pull out after defaulting by using both form
fours and fives rather than four (4) students. In a gesture of  good will
the school decided to withdraw but Good Hope Senior was well beaten by a
well drilled Swaneng side.

In a bizarre turnout of events for the third position, St Josephs were
brought to their knees by the relenting Good -Hope School which had all
their ambitions of thwarting their competitor’s clear efforts to victory.

The final saw the peleng breed Business heads taking their business and
Commerce subjects expertise to the podium with Swaneng Hill School in a
closely contested nerve -racking quiz. After the dust had settled Lobatse
