JC advance to SCQ Semi-final (February 19 2024)
Jamaica College defeated Campion College 34-27 in the second match of a best of three quarter final SCQ match-up. Already leading the series 1-0, the boys clad in their Navy suits had a wire to wire victory, winning each section to finish ahead of their geographic rivals, located just a mile away from the College.
In doing so, the Collegemen, led by Captain Jaheem Khouri, set up a semi-final best of 3 showdown with defending champions St Jago on March 5, 2024. It was their first semi-final berth for the boys from Hope since 1993. That year, JC defeated St Jago in the quarterfinal to lose to eventual Champions Munro in the one-off semi-final.
But 31 years, later, they returned to the hallowed ground of Schools Challenge Quiz studio to book one of the four semi final spots. The two semi-final winners will go on contest the grand final slated to be televised live on TVJ in a date yet to be determined, but scheduled for the first week of April. The other semi-final features Calabar High vs Titchfield High/Manchester High.
Not taking their opponents lightly, Head Coach of Jamaica College Chanarie Lindsay noted, “It’s back to the drawing board for the boys. We know our strengths and weaknesses and our opponents’, so we will have to devise a strategy to be successful on match day. But we are taking it one match at a time.”
Both teams are familiar with each other, having played numerous practices matches against each other. The Boys from the One College are confident they can beat St Jago and advance to the Finals. Team Captain Jaheem Khouri informed us, “We are Collegemen, we are good at everything. And winning is one of those things. St Jago haven’t played a good team to compete with them. Once we are competitive, it will be a different game.”
While the JC supporters are basking in today’s victory, the Team is back to studying, knowing the enormous task at hand to earn a berth to the final. But one thing remains constant in this team is the spirit of comradeship and loyalty to another.

School Challenge Quiz Team Captain’s testimonial
My name is Romain K Bryan and I’m the current captain of Jamaica College’s School Challenge Quiz team. In general, “quiz” is a team-oriented sport which is geared at not only increasing an individual’s knowledge of various subject areas but also the development of leadership qualities, discipline and it reinforces the value of responsibility which is needed by our men in society.
School Challenge Quiz prepares students for the real world, in which assiduous work, commitment and dedication as well as proper decision making are the primary factors needed for success. The preparation is extremely long and fun-filled, however, I must admit it hasn’t been easy but as the saying goes ‘nothing in life which is worthwhile comes easy’. My experiences on the team over the years has been a good one; there is no “I” in the word team thus, being a role player became fundamental in my modus operandi on the team, encouraging my fellow teammates as well as being a role model for all the players.
We are students first and certainly our careers are of utmost importance; online schooling hasn’t been easy for myself at the Upper 6 level, however, I plan ahead and I am extremely confident in my abilities so there are no worries on my behalf as I am a Collegeman so therefore I am good at everything.
The School Challenge Quiz trophy has been missing at Jamaica College since the 1980s, a lot of students searched and still no trace. As the captain of the 2020-2021 School Challenge Quiz team, it is the utmost duty of myself, teammates and management to return or if not give a sense of direction where to find this trophy.
The School Challenge Quiz team. This year, 2019, Mr. C. Powell is coaching the team to Victory. So far, so good. Let’s support them as they move through the competition.
Coach Powell is on the far right.
