DEVON – Devon Prep’s student council kicked off Catholic Schools Week Jan. 31 by sponsoring the First Annual Student vs. Faculty Academic Challenge in the gym. The student team was comprised of juniors and seniors who currently participate on Devon Prep’s Academic Challenge Team. The faculty team included math, science and language teachers who volunteered to take part in this event.
The competition followed the format of the Chester County Intermediate Unit’s High School Academic Challenge Competition with both teams trying to answer as many questions correctly as possible, and subsequently earning the most points. With the entire student body watching, the faculty team got off to a slow start, trailing the students briefly in the first round. However, they quickly recovered and won the competition 195 – 115 after three rounds.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
