Quiz team narrowly loses semi-final

A four strong team of senior pupils narrowly lost out to a tough opposition in the semi-final of the Schools' Challenge Quiz.

The team -S5's Mark Fisher, Lorna Fraser and Kate Lochrie and Angus Symon, both S4 - won the regional heat in March and hosted the semi-final challenge against Lancaster Royal Grammar in the Fotheringay Centre on Tuesday.

The pupils performed well answering a range of extremely hard general knowledge questions correctly but unfortunately they lost
out to the Lancaster Royal team.

The tricky questions which covered a range of subjects including science, geography and literature saw some serious nail-biting in both teams.

English teacher Mrs Leonard said: "The team faced very tough competition, but I am very proud of their efforts. Each team member contributed some excellent answers."
