VAALWATER — The Senior Preparatory Phase at Waterberg Academy recently held their annual Interhouse Quiz.
Davidson and Kirkman houses competed with each other with Davidson house winning by a mere two points.
The order in which the various questions were asked was determined by a spun wheel.
“It was meant to be left to chance, but chance needed a little assistance from time to time,” said a laughing Mark Godfrey, principal of Waterberg Academy.
“Well done to teachers Christie Steyn, Bernie Wagenhauser and their team for a great quiz that integrated fun with revision for exams” Godfrey continued.
High School students at the Academy had the opportunity to show off their quiz talents on Thursday night, 19 May.
Organiser and teacher, Juliet Calcott, roped in the board chairperson, Richard Wadley as the quizmaster. In a slight departure from the norm, teachers and parents were invited to join the teams from both houses.
“The high school had a great evening with everyone entering into the spirit of the event. One of the highlights was listening to snippets from famous speeches with the challenge of identifying the speaker. The music challenges proved popular, with classical music, blasts from the past and contemporary music all featuring. Next year we hope more adults will join us,” said organiser Juliet Calcott.
“Thank you, Richard, for entering into the spirit of the evening and setting a light and fun tone. Another thank you to parent, Phillip Calcott, for his mind-boggling contributions,” said Godfrey.
The final result was again in favour of Davidson House.
