World Scholar’s Cup comes to Limpopo for the first time

POLOKWANE – You might ask yourself, what exactly is the World Scholar’s Cup Tournament?

It is an international team academic program with students participating from over 50 countries around the world.

A team for the World Scholar’s Cup is composed of three students. The teams are usually made up of students from the same school, but mixed teams are allowed.

Each World Scholar’s Cup Regional Round consists of four main events: the Scholar’s Challenge, Collaborative Writing, The Team Debate, and the Scholar’s Bowl. In addition to these four main events, at select tournaments additional activities take place. These activities are both social and academic, and strive to solidify the community aspect of the World Scholar’s Cup.

The tournament recently came to Limpopo for the first time and was hosted at Mitchell House.

Review spoke to four learners who took part to find out what the experience was like for them:

Natalia Letsoalo – “It was my first time doing this and I really enjoyed it, and new ways of learning things and the whole atmosphere was really cool.”

Keren Benjiman – “With this being my first time participating, I found it to be a great learning experience. It also taught us to think in different ways.”

Phumi Shava – “It makes you think outside the box and also makes you experience things you haven’t experienced before.”

Vaniah Thomas – “I think it’s brilliant and also helps you to think. It’s out of the box, it’s not the conventional way to learn. It stimulates and recharge your mind and lap gives you a perspective on life. It’s a fun way of learning new things.”
