This year’s PTA Quiz Night was held on a Friday evening for the first time, on 21 November 2014, and was a massive success with a very respectable turnout. There were thirteen teams in total, including three comprised of staff from departments across the school. There were also some student participants as well, giving the evening more of a competitive edge!
The evening was compered by Mrs Robertson (science technician) and consisted of eighteen rounds on a variety of topics, such as Entertainment, Music, Art and Literature, Food and Drink, among others. When the scores were totalled, there was a tie for first place. With one team comprised completely of staff, and the other containing parents/carers and students, there was a lot at stake in the tie-breaker! Eventually, ’56 Piece Socket Set’ came out on top ahead of the staff team – well done to them!
Overall, it was a fantastic evening. Many thanks to the members of the PTA that prepared a full buffet, with all proceeds going to the school, as well as GrÃ¡inne Kearns, Daniel Harland and Jo Pilkington for assistance with the marking. Finally, a huge thank you to Mrs Robertson, for organising the evening and writing the questions.
