The Supreme Court last Thursday refused an application from Camperdown High School for an injunction to stop the current season of TVJ’s Schools’ Challenge Quiz, the radio and television company said weekend.

Costs were also awarded against Camperdown in the matter, the company said in a news release.

"TVJ is pleased with the decision of the court and hopes the matter puts to rest an unfortunate issue which has emerged as the competition is in its 47th year of staging," the company said but did not give details about the "unfortunate issue".

"Radio Jamaica whom the action was brought against wishes to advise that if it actually pursues the collection of the damages awarded, it will use the funds to inaugurate a fair play or most disciplined team award in the competition starting this year," the company cautioned.

"TVJ remains committed to Schools’ Challenge Quiz and other such programmes it has developed to showcase the best of our young people, especially our children."

TVJ was recently involved in another dispute over allegedly faulty scoring in the match between Campion College and Kingston College. The Camperdown dispute involved Ardenne High.
