College held the first literary quiz,
of what is hoped will be an annual event, in the Chatfeild-Roberts
Library on World Book Day. Two teams of
four Third Form pupils from Newick House and Westal battled it out with questions from a variety of books, old and new.
University Challenge, starters for 10, bonus questions and picture rounds to
identify characters, book titles and authors were all part of the quiz. The
boys from Newick House came out in front with impressive knowledge of authors
as diverse as J. R. R. Tolkien and Charlie Higson. A late surge from Westal,
was not quite enough to pass the boys, so Newick House emerged triumphant. The trophy and prizes
were presented to the teams by Mr John Chatfeild-Roberts, after whose father
the library was renamed following the refurbishment in 2011.
Newick House were represented by Oliver Ferris (Capt), Matthew Burke, Henry Dowding and Kathapob Ittipakorn. The Westal team was Georgina Oates (Capt), Tusmo Ismail, Amber Beachus and Grace Wackett.
Congratulations to everyone who took part.
