As the second term of 2023 came to a close, the eight CITW Zambezi Eco-Clubs located in the Lupane District of Zimbabwe gathered for a fun-filled and competitive inter-club quiz.
Mtshibini Primary proudly hosted the quiz in their beautifully set-up hall where four Eco-Club members who had been selected by their Eco-Mentors gathered to represent their respective schools and clubs.
The quiz was made up of seven rounds of multiple choice, and true-or-false style questions, with each round focusing on general knowledge questions or specific topics such as the Water Cycle & Water Pollution, Trees & Climate Change, and Human-Wildlife Conflict. All of these questions were constructed specifically based on the knowledge learned and taught during lessons that all the Eco-Clubs had covered throughout the first and second term of the year using their CITW curriculums.
Members from the CITW team as well as Ntengwe, a partner organisation in Lupane, made up the judges for the day, ensuring that after every three rounds, as well as after the final round, all of their scores tallied, and were displayed for all clubs to see where they stood. After a very fun seven rounds, AMR Sisters Primary took first place, with Mtshibini Primary following in second place and Makhovula Primary just behind in third place.
The entire day was a truly great success. Not only did it test our Eco-Club members’ knowledge of what they have been learning in their clubs, but also allowed the members and mentors to interact and mingle with the other CITW schools.
Following the success of the day, CITW Zambezi looks forward to hosting four more quizzes in the coming term. These will take place among our schools in Tsholothsho, our schools in Victoria Falls, our schools in Mana Pools, and lastly, our schools in Zambia.
