The Event

The World Knowledge Olympiad is a long standing national Olympiad for Grade 6 - 12 learners. For almost 30 years, it has attracted bright and curious young minds who are self-starters wanting to know more about the world around them.

The Olympiad is open to ALL learners at South African schools so it is an opportunity to challenge your school and your learners to test their general knowledge against the rest of the country. 

You can either enter the High School (Gr 8 - 12) or the Primary School Olympiad (Gr 6 -7). The entry fee is R25 per learner. If your school enters more than 25 learners, then you qualify for the discounted rate of R15 per person.
