Students Abigail Merry and Bethany Somers had the opportunity to compete in the World Scholars Cup in the USA at Yale University. These girls undertook many hours of study and completed in the regionals and nationals to be eligible to compete. Teams took part in collaborative writing, debating, the Scholar’s Bowl Quiz and Scholar’s Challenge Exam with a focus on the 2019 theme ‘A World on the Margins’. They have been incredibly successful and came 9th in the WORLD out of 600 teams who competed and won numerous gold medals and awards. Amazing Phoenix women!
