Year 7 Quiz Night raises £1,700!

The school hall was at full capacity last Friday night for the Year 7 Quiz.  Boys, staff and parents pit their wits in 9 challenging rounds that included a specially commissioned ‘Verulam Family Fortunes’ where our Year 7s formed the survey panel, and ‘Bean Boozled’ that invited quiz-goers to identify the gourmet jelly bean flavour. More conventional rounds including ‘World Wonders’ and ‘Be a Good Sport’ followed, before the eventual victors – ‘Six Years ’til They Leave Home’ combining families from 7P, 7Y and 7C – were crowned champions.

£1,700 was raised, and Year 7 pupils will be canvassed in the coming weeks on how they would like to see the funds spent. A huge thank you to all involved in making this enormously enjoyable evening possible.

Just 90 Minutes of your time…
