On Tuesday, the victorious Windsor’s House Quiz team returned for a special one-off match against a crack team of staff. The Windsor’s team of Kit M-J, Alfie B, Taylor G and Barnes O showed excellent knowledge on a wide range of topics, including European flags, SI units, and the songs of Disney films.
They were, however, pipped right at the last post by the Common Room team of Mr Townsend, Mrs Stefanini, Mr Pathak, and Ms Keable, who triumphed by 350 to 320, displaying an in-depth understanding of the Teletubbies, 1980s hip-hop, and Homer’s Iliad.
The match was an excellent celebration of all the general knowledge demonstrated in the House Quiz over the past year. Massive thanks must go to Mr Maude-Barker for his Paxman-esque delivery as quizmaster, and Mr Quinlan in channelling Roger Tilling’s style of announcements.
The House Quiz returns next year with both Junior and Senior competitions, so there’s a perfect opportunity to revise your general knowledge over the summer and get involved!
