The end of Round One of TVJ's Junior Schools' Challenge Quiz is almost here! With just two matches left in Round One, the excitement continues to build for the much-anticipated Round Two.

The penultimate match takes place this evening between two St Catherine-based schools: Linstead Primary and Guy's Hill Primary. On Tuesday, the final match of Round One will be between Padmore Primary from St Andrew and Hopewell Preparatory from St Elizabeth.

This week also signals the start of Round Two on Wednesday when the much-talked-about Portsmouth Primary continues its quest to become the 2017 champions. The team is seeking to go through the rounds after defeating Mona Preparatory in Round One. The Portsmouth team will take on Catherine Hall Primary, making the first match of Round Two a must-watch encounter.

After Portsmouth's Round One win, the team's coach, Claudia Gayle-Rose, told The Gleaner that she was very happy with the performance "I am very, very elated. Words cannot express how I feel," she said.

She said that the team would be working on its buzzer skills for Round Two of the competition.
