Jersey Tour Quiz Night 2013

Posted: 6th February 2013

Almost a hundred parents, friends and teachers packed the Gym on Friday for the annual quiz that raises funds for the 5 day Sports Tour to Jersey for Year 7 and 8 pupils. The coveted Hurel Mack Trophy was up for grabs and the Question Masters, Paul Mack and Steve Hurel (ably aided and abetted by their minder, the  debonair James Leach) put us all through our paces in a very competitive competition.

It was a most convivial occasion with Meg Jump’s specialist Chilli recipe raising the temperature in the room and fuelling respective brains!  Cheese and desserts courtesy of the parents added to the feast and Bacchus would have been pleased with the amount of wine consumed.

The Headmaster’s table -Team Denis named after the black and white cat who seems to be a permanent visitor at Skippers – decided not to pussyfoot around and pawsitively romped ahead to lift the cup!  A purrfect end to a purrfect evening!  A catastrophe for the teachers’ table…better luck next year!

Above you can see Denis with the spoils of war!

A stunning evening and my thanks to all that made it happen!
