Last week saw our inter-house quiz where the four houses went head to head in the traditional end of year competition.

The heats were keenly fought as pupils and staff faced off over questions about British trivia, famous faces, sites and names of international bridges, and engaged in a spelling bee. 42 for Calder going through to the final and 39 for Ribble. In the second heat, both Hodder and Douglas were on 47. The former won the tense physical challenge tie breaker of finding and arranging items from the room in accordance with the Quiz Master’s (Mrs Cowell’s) rules. 

The final saw Calder and Hodder do battle over lots of general knowledge questions, identifying foods and culinary items, more spotting of famous faces and naming 1970s toys. 

Calder were the victors by an impressive 10 point lead.  Calder 55 and Hodder 45.

Well done to Harriett H (Year 8), Sophie P (Year 7), Preston McM (Year 10), Reece R (Year 9) and Head of Calder, Mrs Eastham. 

Well done to all participants.
