PTFA Adult Quiz Night
Nine teams comprising over 80 parents needed all their wits about them to master the fiendish questions set at the PTFA Adult Quiz by Richard Bland and his Year 12 assistants – Adam, Matt, Elizabeth and Katherine. Questions about science, culture, sports stadiums and famous (or not?) bridges challenged many of us. In the end the team “Bulldogs with Glasses” triumphed over “Universally Challenged” –Their team was comprised of Pip, Danny, Gabby, Jeanette, Paul, Emily, Jim, Samantha and Charlotte (both of whom were responsible for the cooking) and they were leading for most of the event. However in the end “Bulldogs with Glasses” triumphed and the famous Quiz Night cup was handed over from last year’s winners “The Incumbents”. The pictures show Shelley being the proud recipient of the cup as well as one of the whole of the winning team: Simon, Rosie, Duncan, Emily, Ben, Phil, Catherine, Colin and Polly. Over £1,500 was raised for the school.
Many thanks to Richard and his team for setting such an outstanding quiz. A massive thank you to Samantha and Charlotte for cooking the most delicious chicken and vegetable curries and to Vanessa, Declan, Wendy R, Rachel, Nell, Wendy N and Gilly for organising the evening. It was a real success. A quote from a parent “It was one of the best evenings I have had at Twyford. Such a great atmosphere”. Roll on next year!
