Stockland’s Battle of the Schools enters second year of competition

22 primary schools from across the region will compete in the 2020 Battle of the Schools

Bundaberg’s second annual Battle of the Schools is underway, with 22 primary schools from across the region competing in friendly trivia for a chance to be crowned this year’s champions.

In partnership with local radio station Hitz 93.9, the competition will test students’ knowledge in subjects such as maths, science, history and more. Twenty-two teams of three have started to ‘battle it out’, going head-to-head in a weekly trivia showdown.

Centre Manager at Stockland Bundaberg, Paul Davis, said: “We’re always looking for opportunities to get involved with our community, especially if it means supporting learning and educational growth. It also fosters engagement, pride and sense of belonging, which has never been more important than it has this year.

“The inaugural Battle of the Schools was a great success, so we’re looking forward to continuing building on that momentum.”

The grand finals are set to take place on Sunday 22 November. The winning team of students will each take home a Microsoft Surface Pro Computer and the three running up teams will receive Microsoft products courtesy of Queensland Computers. The other participating teams will be given a Stockland goodie bag filled with gifts from their local retailers and a special medal to recognise their hard work.

Corey Pitt, General Manager at Hitz 93.9 and second-time host of the competition, said: “Following the massive success of Stockland Battle of the Schools last year, we were very pleased to see 22 local primary schools nominate for inclusion in this brilliant quiz series.

“This record number of schools involved goes to show just how big an event series Stockland Battle of the Schools has become throughout the entire Bundaberg region. While the huge promotion on radio is drawing phenomenal attention to this event, the engagement by the school fraternity, especially with social media, is simply incredible.”

This year, Stockland will also host a special quiz separate to the main competition, with a $250 Stockland gift card awarded for first prize and retailer vouchers going to second and third place winners.
