Hosted by the parents' association (HSPA), our Harrodian Charity Quiz Night was another fantastic evening of fun, facts and fundraising. Under the watchful eye of Paul Evers, quizmaster for the evening, nineteen teams competed for the coveted Harrodian Quiz Night Trophy.
Josef, our school chef, cooked a delicious Thai curry that was served by our fantastic team of Prefects. A cash bar, together with ticket prices, raised money for the chosen charity of the evening too.
This year, there were two tables of teachers who took part - both a Prep and Senior team. However this year it was the Prep teachers' team who won by one correct answer to the question: Can you name the only English Pope? The answer: Adrian!
Mrs Hitchcock, Mrs O'Neill, Ms Morrow, Mrs Morgan, and Mr Rodricks, who were all part of the Prep Teacher's team, can be seen here proudly displaying the trophy.
Mr Hooke once again hosted his own quiz round, asking Harrodian themed questions, including how many lunches he has eaten, as Headmaster. Possibly too many?
The evening was a great success raising £3,000 for CharityWater.org and we were fortunate to welcome two representatives from the charity, Hannah and Eleanor, who spoke about the work they do. Winkworth Estate Agents in Barnes have agreed to increase the final amount donated to CharityWater to £3,500, which is fantastic news.
A big thank you to our Events Committee, to our Head Girl and Head Boy, our team of Senior Prefects who all helped on the evening and to all the parents and staff who attended and supported this event.
