Year 6 De Putron Challenge 2023

Forest School took part in THE biggest schools quiz in the Channel Islands.

After a gruelling selection process Jesse, Billy and Cameron were chosen to represent Forest Primary School at the 2023 De Putron Challenge. 

The De Putron Challenge was created in 2007, it sees Year 6 and Year 8 pupils from Guernsey and Jersey compete against each other in a University Challenge-style quiz.

Five teams took part in the first year – a number that has grown to 52 across both islands in 2023.

This year’s theme was It’s Time, seen throughout the three heat rounds of In Recent Times for current affairs, times tables and clock-based questions for maths, and an environment round named Running out of Time.

There was also a creative STEM round, developed with the Channel Islands Group of Professional Engineers, where contestants were tasked with making a moving car using a balloon and craft materials.

We congratulate Jesse, Billy and Cameron for working incredibly well as a team and placing 5th overall.  We also want to thank Year 6 who were, by far, the best supporters there!
