WelshWise quiz

The WelshWise quiz, coordinated by the GA Special Interest Group for Wales, is one part of WorldWise for secondary schools. It provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate their geographical knowledge, understanding and skills, especially in relation to current events and matters of global and local significance.

The quiz brings together schools and students for face-to-face geographical fun and challenge. It is designed to promote student interest in geography in Wales and also raise the profile of the subject within participating schools. It is also an occasion to build links between the local school geography departments.
