On Friday 13 January Post 16 Prefects hosted a charity quiz night in the Lower Café in support of CLIC Sargent, a cancer charity that has a personal significance to one of our prefects. Seventeen staff and student teams such as ‘Quizzee Rascals’ and ‘We Write Your References’ all competed to win the grand prize of the quiz cup, along with some Hotel Chocolat gift boxes. There were nine rounds in total, ranging from general knowledge, pop culture and a ‘can you feel it’ round where teams had to identify ten items in a sealed envelope.
Halfway through the night there was time for a musical performance from prefects Iga Jazdzejewska and Anna Mizen while the guests tucked in to some pizza and refreshments. Alongside the quiz, Molly Chadd and Fran Williams ran a highly successful tuck shop, selling out on bags of sweets and crisps.
At the end of the evening the winning team was announced as ‘Quiztal Clear’, a team including Mrs Woodard, Mr Watson,Mr Cobb and friends. The highest ranking student team was ‘You’re a Quizzard Harry’ including James Carpenter, Matt Amos, Callum Jones, Luca Russo, Chetan Mistry and Archie Macnaughtan
In total the event raised £410 for CLIC Sargent, and as it was such a success, we plan to hold another one next year.
