Thanks to our host schools- Kingswood High School in New South Wales, Blackwood High School in South Australia, and Kingswood College in Victoria – for all their help in bringing IHBB to Australia for the first time, and thanks to all our inaugural year participants! While IHBB staff were in Australia for the events, we also visited with eleven other schools who are looking to begin participating next year, so for 2015, we’ll be in great shape. For further questions about any aspects of our events, please contact nolwenn@historybowl.com
Thanks again for your support and we hope that everyone who came had a great time!
