On Friday 13th December, AGGS hosted their very own Pointless Quiz. The event had been kindly organised by the IT Technicians and took place to raise money for the library. Mr Adshead was also the compere. The quiz’s contestants were:
- Mr Lovelady and Mr Murray,
- Mr Carr and Mrs Hulme;
- Mr Starnes, and Mr Gough,
- Dr Roberts and Mrs Russell.
The game consisted of six rounds, each with a different category (the aim of the game being that each team had to try and guess the least common answer). After a brief introduction from each teacher, the game began.
Round 1 – Words without vowels (Mr Lovelady + Mr Murray were eliminated)
Round 2 – Geography/flags (Mr Starnes + Mr Gough out)
Round 3 – Theme tunes
Round 4 – Breed of dogs
Round 5 – Fruit in foreign languages (Mr Carr + Mrs Hulme came second place)
Last round – 50 most followed twitter accounts
Dr Roberts and Mrs Russell won a glass plate, engraved with the AGGS Pointless Quiz logo. The quiz managed to raise over £160 for the library. It was a wonderful event, and a great start to the festive season.
