Malaysian History Bee and the Bowl Championships

On Sunday 24 February, 5 Year 9 students- Caitlyn Tan, Rhu Ming Chan, Ekaterina Fomina, Wylie Sia and Zachary Chewattended the Malaysian History Bee and the Bowl Championships at Sunway International School.

It is the first time BSKL has entered this competition. The Bee is an individual competition and the Bowl is a team event. Zachary and Rhu Ming entered into the Bee and Rhu Ming did exceptionally well coming third overall. Below, is the account of the event from Caitlyn.

The Bee and the Bowl was an interesting and enlightening experience. Not unlike trivial pursuit, two teams squared off each other (with a maximum of four members to a team) and we each had a buzzer. Then the questions commenced. The first person to press the buzzer and answer correctly would win some points (depending on the allocated value of the question). If the question was answered incorrectly both teams would still have a shot at it. Then came the lighting rounds which was 6 questions per team where consultation was allowed. If the answer was answered incorrectly, at the end of the round, the other team had a go. Overall, the experience was very good and it was quite enlightening to be exposed to more Asian and World history than usual. BSKL has taught us many deduction skills which helped us win points in each round. Mrs. Parker was exceptionally supportive and I think that we managed to do very well.
