Congratulations are extended to the Preparatory School General Knowledge team which successfully retained the Rowland Constantine Shield in Friday’s IAPS District 2 General Knowledge Final.  The team was in striking distance of the lead throughout, scoring especially well in the team rounds on airline logos, holy books, literary first lines and heroes and heroines, as well as showcasing impressive recall in the individual rounds.  However, the team’s knowledge of castles proved decisive as it snuck home in the final round to head the scores of Bickley Park, Hilden Grange, New Beacon and Wellesley House, winning by two points to defend the title.  Well done!
