More Are This Year's Champions In House University Challenge
More were the victors in the College’s annual House University Challenge competition, after achieving a super score of 245 across their three matches.
University Challenge is a regular House event, based on the long running TV quiz show. In the College’s competition the teams are required to have representatives from each year group and the pupils face questions on a wide range of subjects including Literature, Sport, Science, History, Maths, Art, Film, Technology, Music and Religion. Across two weeks the House teams faced each other in turn in front of an audience of Tutor groups.
Quizmaster for the competition was House Activities Leader, Meg O’Gorman, who enjoyed asking the infamous starter for 10 and follow up bonus questions.
Playing for More this year were: Year 7 pupils: Austin Newbold and Sofia Papadogiannakis, Year 8s: Oliver Quinn and Harry Ratchford, Year 9s: Elwin Williams and Jacob George, Year 10s: Abbas Hazra-Omer and Jonjo Boyle, Year 11s: Jack Mills and Dylan Willliams, Lower Sixth Formers: Giorgio Kleinmann, Toby Wollaston and Abi Gillard and Upper Sixth Formers: George Wild and Joseph Newborough
After the final match Miss O’Gorman commented, “Thank you to all of the pupils who participated in this year’s competition. It is very different being on stage to when you are in the audience or watching at home. The questions were challenging, and the matches were all exciting. Well done to everyone who took part.”
The final results were as follows: 1st More, 2nd Fisher, 3rd Austin and 4th Benet.
