QUIZ NIGHT - 22 march 2019
The recent Quiz Night was not only an enormously fun evening with teachers, parents, friends and families taking part but it also raised the fabulous sum of £1,291.90! In the present climate of school funding cuts this money is much needed - going toward providing essentials for our children’s education.
More than 10 teams participated, negotiating several rounds of questions covering various subjects put to them by our Quiz Master, Mr Steve Cook. Congratulations to the winning table and commiserations to the ‘Wooden Spoons’!
We are very grateful to everyone who donated prizes which allowed a great raffle to be held. As tradition dictates, a round of ‘Heads or Tails’ was enjoyed in the interval.
