PTA Burns Night Quiz Was A Winner For All

01 Feb

Last Friday 29 January the College PTA hosted a super Scottish themed extravaganza in aid of Mary’s Meals, a charity close to Princethorpe’s heart. The virtual quiz celebrated Burns Night and proved to be a fabulous evening of fun.

Featuring Rabbie Burns’ renowned poetry, with a rendition of the great bard’s Address To A Haggis, it included six rounds of 10 questions each, with topics such as Geography, Music, Sport, Celebrities, Landmarks and General Knowledge all with a Scottish slant.

The quiz was free, but families were asked to donate to Mary’s Meals and the evening included a short insight into Princethorpe’s fundraising for the school feeding programme at Makalanga School in Malawi.

The evening was excellent lockdown entertainment. It was great to see everyone having such a good time and to receive lots of positive feedback including ‘Fabulous quiz night’, ‘Amazing Burns Night Quiz’ and ‘Thanks for a lovely evening’.

The real winners though, thanks to everyone’s amazing generosity, were the children at Makalanga School with donations to the PTA Quiz and to the half-marathon weekend runners, Rod Isaacs, Ben Collie, Jen Law and Rod’s good friend Michael Koch, totalling £2359.17.  A figure that benefits from the Government’s pledge to match funding, doubling the donations to an outstanding £4718.34 for this deserving cause.

Huge thanks to all who took part and all who donated to Mary’s Meals.
