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.
Round 1, JC beat St. Mary’s college 31 – 15. The next match is on Monday, February 18, JC Vs Dinthill. Tune in!
Coach Powell is on the far right.
