A message from the Trust
The Christmas break already seems a distant memory and January has been a long and busy month. To help make the return to work something to look forward to (even more), the second trust staff quiz took place on 10th January at the Cricket St Thomas Golf Club.
Fourteen staff teams from all of the schools took part, tackling rounds on a range of topics from identifying the fiendish pictures of Mr Burr and Mrs Rogers in a range of national costumes, to sport, religious leaders, film, ‘linkee’ and the most popular and highest performing round by far, where teams had to identify different chocolate bars by tasting tiny samples. With dazzling compering from Mr Burr and his able assistant, Mr Heath-Coleman, combined with the technical expertise of Charlie Main, our hosts are waiting for a call from Channel 4 to commission a series.
Despite some fierce competition (some extremely fierce, particularly in the ‘linkee’ round), the team from Holy Trinity proved victorious by a narrow margin from last year’s winners from Priorswood.
With staff having clearly got a taste for competition (and chocolate), we now have a rounders match and BBQ set to take place at Holy Trinity in the summer term. If you catch sight of staff members limbering up and practising their rounders swing, you will know why.
It’s always good to have something to look forward to and we are delighted to be able to offer something back to our hard-working staff who take such trouble to give our children something to look forward to each day at school.
