Metropolitan Secondary Schools Competition
History

 

 

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

This competition has been conducted at least since the late 1940s.   Here are the winners, except for a few early years for which the details are unknown (any help in filling the gaps would be appreciated).

Until 1978 the competition was held in up to four grades: A, B, C and D (Beginners) Grades.
Since then it has been held in school year-based grades (Junior, Intermediate and Senior)
plus (until more recently) an Open Grade (any secondary school year).
