IB & Year 8 - UAE History Bowl & History Bee Competitions

On Friday 17th March BIS Abu Dhabi entered two teams; an IB & Year 8 group into the UAE History Bowl, and eight for the History Bee quiz competitions at Brighton College.

The IB team performed well in the Bowl group stages beating the host Brighton’s A & B teams as well as a school from the Maldives. They lost their final group match to the eventual winners Abu Dhabi home schools association. The IB team also qualified for the History Olympiad taking place in Berlin 2018 as well as the Asian championships in June this year.

Our Year 8 team battled hard against other schools which were mostly made up of Year 9 students. In the individual competition IB students; Balint Janecsko and Gillian Francis and Year 8 student; Inshirah Meer all qualified for the History Olympiad after finishing in the top five.

The students enjoyed the day, found the questions challenging, but are keen to attend future tournaments.
