QMS student B.C.'s top scorer at scholastic challenge
Last year, it was Queen Margaret's School student Alexandra Barnes.
This year, it's QMS pupil Hannah Gibbs who's earned the province's top score in the Canadian Scholastic Achievement League Scholastic Challenge.
More than 3,000 Grade 6 students across the country took the exam that spans 99 questions in six categories during one hour online.
And for two years running, the top B.C. student is a QMS student.
"We are so proud of Hannah," head of school Wilma Jamieson said in a media release. "Her hard work, and that of her fellow classmates, is a testament to the outstanding teaching skills of our junior school faculty, We hope the excitement around this academic challenge will encourage our younger students as well."
"The live, online nature of the exam integrates our ongoing information technology studies in a new and engaging way," Grade 6 teacher Fiona Morrison added.
