Phuket’s first Inter-School History Quiz supervised by the International History Bee & Bowl Asia Division was hosted by PIADS on Wednesday 3rd December and British International School, Phuket (BISP) walked away with almost all the honours.
In the team events held at Middle School and Senior School levels, BISP defeated PIADS in all the matches.
In the individual ‘Bee’, five of the six medal places went to BISP students. Minerva Kasayapanand won the Silver Medal in the Junior Division, Kevin Cohen and Leon Carpenter won Gold and Silver at Junior Varsity level, and Jack Phelps and Peter Jansson took gold and Silver in the Senior Varsity class.
The event was tremendously enjoyable and there were some impressive displays of historical knowledge on some very obscure topics such as the Ottoman Empire, Ancient China, Medieval British Monarchs and Bismarckian Germany.
After this success we qualify for the Asian Championships to be held of all places in Khao Lak in June 2015.
