TY's organise an innovative online End-of-Term Winter Quiz!

NEWS / 22 December 2021

Last day of of the winter term? Well it has to be the end-of-term quiz! For a second year running it was run online and organised so brilliantly by the TY's. Not only was it a quiz (6 rounds of 10 questions), but it was highly entertaining and technically brilliant!

Each class stayed in their base room and joined the quiz online. The broadcasting centre was in the Computer Lab where the TY's ran the counting centre and broadcast the videos. Major shout-out to Noam in 5th Year who was also part of the team!

Each class had to submit their answers through an online form, where all answers were checked by the TY's. It was closely fought contest throughout with the eventual winners as follows:

  • 1st place - 6th Years
  • 2nd place - 2nd Years
  • 3rd place - 5th Years

It was a great way to end the term! Thanks to everyone involved and for making us laugh so much! See the web gallery for lots of photos.
