Fiendish questions, Alistair Stewart and a wonderful chilli
Another really entertaining Head’s Quiz Night was held on May 4 with a packed hall of over 100 quizzers – some serious and some not quite so serious! Teams were made up of staff, parents and friends with ITV’s News Presenter Alastair Stewart returning for the fourth year as the perfect quiz master.
Mr Sullivan’s questions were particularly fiendish this year, including:
- On which Jane Austen novel was the film ‘Clueless’ based?
- Which is further west - Edinburgh or Bristol?
- Which animal can have a different number of vertebrae?
- Which cycle race shares a name with a New York landmark?
There was much head-scratching and indeed wild guesses as each of the 7 rounds went on!
The PTA supported the event brilliantly and did sterling work, running the bar and preparing and serving the delicious chilli supper cooked by newly appointed chef Rosemary Lock.
It was truly a whole school effort with some Year 10 prefects helping to mark the papers and other students providing the sound and lighting during the evening.
The quiz winners were the ‘Hums Chums – congratulations to them!
Shelley Kinteh, Louise Smith, Clare Daish, Ian Jones and Sarah Hopkins
And this year's cup winners were Monty House! Go Monty! The cheers could be heard throughout the school, probably throughout Hampshire And if you're Spenser or Austen.... it all starts again in September. #WeAreEggars https://t.co/11g4SYM8Hi 10:47 AM - 23 Jul 2021
