Since January they have been answering questions and learning interesting facts in preparation for the Great Canadian Geography Challenge.
In late March students answered a series of questions within their classrooms to determine three finalists for each class.
On April 2, the nine finalists competed in the gym in front of classmates and family to determine the school champion by answering 25 difficult questions. All students did a wonderful job.
