School teachers and heads are invited to attend the event, which is also meant to celebrate academic excellence in the country.
NSQC founder, Ian Venganai, will crown the best 2017 award winners, St Johns Emerald Hill, who will also pocket R850 000 as the reigning regional champions.
NSQS committee representative, Nyasha Mhlanga, told NewsDay yesterday that the event was meant to inspire other schools to register, so they could participate in the prestigious World Series tournament to be held at Pearson Institute of Higher Education in Midrand, South Africa from December 6 to 12 this year.
Last year, students from Marist Brothers College won the competition after beating 23 other schools from South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The NSQC is a series of televised quizzes that test high school students’ knowledge of science, maths, African facts, history, literature and general knowledge.
