08 Jun Uplands Quest Treasure Hunt
There was great excitement at Uplands Preparatory School on Tuesday afternoon! The team from The Quest Treasure Hunt came to the tell the pupils all about the actual event taking place in Mbombela on 3 July 2021, with prize money of R20 000 to be won! The pupils took part in an “Uplands Mini-Treasure Hunt” whereby they had to solve clues about the history of the school, the trees in the garden and interesting landmarks etc.
The organisers placed examples of QR codes at the various clue locations throughout the school campus and the pupils had to solve riddles to find these locations. The competitive spirit amongst the children was contagious, with many of the boys’ teams taking the lead with exceptional athletic skills which included racing around the school grounds and taking out any obstacle that they encountered. The girls followed a more intellectual and cautious approach, but this cost them in time. Maybe they were chatting too much along the way!
Up for grabs were 3 “Golden Tickets” to the event on 3 July. The value of these tickets is R600 each. We are sure that many Uplands families will put their clue-solving skills to the test on 3 July – who knows, maybe one of them might win the grand prize of R20 000!
