The second annual SPM Bible Knowledge (BK) Quiz, Southern Zone was held on 5th July 2014 at Methodist Girls’ Secondary School (MGSS), Melaka, from 8 AM – 1 PM.
After registration, the participants gathered at a hall for Praise and Worship before proceeding to a photo-taking session at the school’s field.
This was followed by the BK 14 Quiz, an individual-written quiz held in various classrooms. This year, there were altogether 58 participants from Johor and Melaka engaging in this part of the competition.
The results were as followed:
Form 1 – Sandra Petrina Nonis (Canossa Convent, Melaka)
Form 2 – Wong Zhu Shi (St David High School, Melaka)
Form 3 – Luke Yeo Rui Qiang (St David High School, Melaka)
Form 4 – Chu Jin Ning (Gajah Berang School, Melaka)
Form 5 – Lois Low Yi (Methodist Girls’ Secondary School, Melaka)
The Oral BK Quiz commenced soon after. Thanks to the initiative of Liow Miin Yi of Cannossian Convent, Kluang, students from three schools in Kluang, Johor, were enabled to make thire journey to participate in the quiz. Of this group from Johor, four individual participants took part in the BK 14 Quiz while a team participated in the Oral BK Quiz. As for Melaka, five teams from eight mission schools and other individual participants also came.
Allyna Ng and Kathleen Low in the team from Convent Holy Infant Jesus, Melaka, was way ahead of the other teams and ran home with the T. Rajendran Challenge Trophy for Melaka, as well as the Southern Division Trophy. Second and third places went to St David High School’s Chuah Chee Song and Tan May Wei, and Nisha Pramithra and Dviana Mavani, respectively.
The judges for the Oral BK Quiz were A. Jagan Anandan of UiTM Bandaraya Melaka, Daphne Rosaline of PPD Melaka Tengah and Liow Miin Yi. The Quiz Master was Joel Tan and the Quiz Mistress was Nina Pramila.
We hope that next year, Negeri Sembilan will also join in and more participants from other parts of Johor and Melaka will also attend. Christian Fellowship teachers, especially, are advised to encourage and prepare their students, so that the Word of God is taught and hidden in the hearts of the young generation.
A big thank you to Reeta Baniface of MGSS for helming the committee this year. We would also like to extend our deep appreciation to Waan Wai Teng, a representative from the Malayan Christian Schools’ Council, organiser of the quizzes. Waan has been a great help every step of the way.
