HCA General Knowledge Quiz
As the year draws to a close, many of Westerford’s events have been keeping Westerfordians busy. From JRR Tolkein's birthplace to Manchester United's manager, the HCA general knowledge quiz had it all. Westerfordians may not be doing school work at this time of year but it doesn't mean that they aren't learning anything!
This annual quiz allowed students to learn interesting facts across many different categories such as history, sport and geography. There were six teams, each made up of four learners all from the same class 'letter' but different grades. The teams were asked about 10 questions in each round by our very own quizmasters, Mr Voerman and Mr Massyn. The teams thought carefully about their answers, deliberating on questions as to what to write down. Two teams were eliminated in each round and it was between teams E and F to see who would face the reigning champions, also known as the teachers. In the end, it was team F that went on to battle the teachers in the final round. With Toblerones on the line, Team F fought valiantly but in the end the teachers' years of experience carried them through, winning 6-4.
The quiz was filled with lots of laughter and the audience also had their chance to win delicious KitKats in the audience questions. There was even a beatboxing competition, with the so called "Bleatbox" taking the prize. Thank you to HCA, with the help of Sound Team, for hosting such a great event. It was a great way to end off the year!
