St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): For the first time in history, the Immaculate Conception Catholic School took the title of SCASPA’s Best In Class.
ICCS faced off against the Basseterre High School in the finals Thursday evening, after four high schools were eliminated over the past three weeks of the competition.
With a score of 80 points, ICCS beat out former back-to-back champions Basseterre High, which only managed to put up a total of fifty points.
The two-student team representing ICCS was leader Khalid Francis, and Erin Etienne, supported by “lifeline” members Ashley Francs, and Sudheeksha Venkatesh.
Vidonje Richardson and Joel Doohkie represented Basseterre High. Zuwena Bennett and Amy Rawlins were their "lifeline" members.
ICCS’ Khalid Francis amassed 50 points, the highest individual score in the finals and Basseterre High School’s Vidonje Richardson was second with 25 points.
The competing students had to answer questions from the third-form core-curriculum, and about SCASPA’s history and operations.
The Immaculate Conception Catholic School won a monetary prize of $1500, and each student got a check for $375 along with trophies.
The Basseterre High School contestants received trophies, $250 each, and one thousand dollars for their school.
The lunch and tour date on a Carnival cruise ship went to the Charles E. Mills Secondary School, whose team scored the most overall points in SCASPA’s Best In Class Quiz.
