World Knowledge Olympiad
The World Knowledge Olympiad is a long standing national Olympiad for Grade 6 – 12 learners. For almost 30 years, it has attracted bright and curious young minds who are self-starters wanting to know more about the world around them.
The Olympiad is open to ALL learners at South African schools so it is an opportunity to challenge your school and your learners to test their general knowledge against the rest of the country.
High School (Gr 8 – 12) or the Primary School Olympiad (Gr 6 -7) can enter. The entry fee is R25 per learner. If your school enters 50 or more learners, then you qualify for the discounted rate of R15 per person.
Each learner that participates in the World Knowledge Olympiad, will receive a certificate. The question paper is in English and your school’s choice of Afrikaans, isiZulu or isiXhosa.
